Ringworm is a fungus. Unless you've used proper antifungals, you haven't really tried. Sure, I'll use Crest toothpaste if it's near an eye, but I won't cover the entire calf with it!! Proper treatment involves using a prescription product such as griseovulvin or enilconazole...everything else is much less effective....talk to your veterinarian!
