You can buy many antifungal treatments over the counter at your local walgreens/drug store. Lamisil is one. They are cheap. You can ask any phamacist at a walgreens/CVS or drug store what they recommend for an antifungal for ringworm.
Ringworm is contagious to people and other animals, so don't come in contact with it, or allow the dog to play with other pets.

You can also buy Microtek anti Itch shampoo which is antifungal.

Thos e treatments won't hurt if it is something else, but won't help if it is something like mange.

Thanks for the reply :) I have had ring worm myself years ago, but I did not know if "human" antifungals would be appropriate for a dog as well. Thankfully the only other pets we have are two cats, and they avoid each other if at all possible.
The people ones are fine. wash bedding in hot water if cats also lay there.
