You will only need the wild oregano (Origanum vulgare) and not the common one (Origanum marjoram), because it contains thymol and carvacrol, that helps to stop fungus from growing.

What do you need to do:

  • Dilute oregano oil and apply to the area 3 times a day.

Coconut Oil

Fatty acids in the coconut oil damage the cell membranes of the fungus but it can be effective only if the infection is mild.

What do you need to do:

  • Usage is super simple, just apply the oil to the area three times a day. And it would be great to use it a couple weeks after the infection is treated to prevent it from happening again.

Turmeric contains an antimicrobial component called curcumin, which is a good remedy against the ringworm. Turmeric may turn your skin a little yellow, but don’t worry, it’ll fade in a couple days.

What do you need:

  • turmeric
  • water or coconut oil

Mix it and apply on the infected skin, leave for as long as possible and then wash it off with water. Also, you can add turmeric to your tea or meals, although, the direct application will be more effective.

These are the most common and the most effective home remedies, but in any case, you should visit a doctor before trying to treat the infected skin on your own. You may only worsen the situation.
