tea tree oil diluted will kill ring worm.  Are they sure it's ring worm?  

eta- dilute it w/ olive oil or some other oil.  It can burn or irritate the skin if not diluted.

When my son had one they gave me Lamisil to put on it and it went away

if its ringworm it can get in his sheets and the carpet. i suggest wash all clothes after wear and sheets everyday and vacuum your floors daily with a vacuum that has a hepafilter on it or it will never go away. this is advice from a vet after have 9 puppies and everybody in the house infested with ring worm. we had it for almost a year because we kept passing it around to eachother and it was in the carpets and sheets.

o and the lamisil cream worked for it also, but when it kept coming back is when we finally called a vet. they gave us this horrible soap for the puppies it smelled like rotten eggs. if you have animals might want to check them as well

How does ringworm get in the carpet?  What does a hepa filter do for fungus?  I am very confused now......

It is very contagious but I am curious why so much treatment and no result.  Does your ds have a compromised immune system?

I had ringworm a few years ago and the only thing that worked was tea tree oil.
