My daughter, almost 2, has little spot of ringworm on her hip, and has for about a month. We've been using TTO, momma milk, sunshine, and anti-fungal cream to get rid of it. I was unsure about using anti-fungal cream and CDs, and so we've been using paper diapers. When can i go back to her real diapers?

Borax is also an anti-fungal. You could add it to the wash to disinfect the diapers too.

Are you sure it is ringworm? My DS had a little spot of excema on his bum that looked exactly like ringworm. The doctor said that is what it is known for, and commonly misidentified. I can't remember the name, but I am sure you can with a little googling.

A little cortisone cream cleared it right up.
