Ringworm. I have it. What now?

The kids and dogs are ringworm free, from what I can tell.  Seems I am Patient Zero.

How do you treat this stuff?  

I have a tube of topical cream.  Is there anything else you ladies, who have done this dance, would recommend?

It's in the crook of my arm.  Someone else would have to pee on it.  Assuming, of course, that I was crazy enough to even consider such a thing.

Usually it's on the feet. It's what athlete's foot is.

The uric acid and ammonia in urine kills the fungus. Easy way to get rid of athletes foot is to pee on it in the shower.

Clear fingernail polish is what my mom always used and it cleared it up within a few days. Worked great.
