Well actually no.

Can you go tanning with ringworm?

Yes you can go tanning with ringworm. The bright UV lights damage the ringworm fungus and drys out your skin. This process of quickly drying the skin will actually help get rid of the ringworm. I would wait to apply any topical creams until after you are done tanning because they might irritate your skin when combined with tanning lights. P.S. Don't tell the tanning business that you have ringworm because they might not let you into the beds. (You can trust this answer, I have had ringworm multiple times, it comes with being a wrestler)
