Milk has no effect, whatsoever, on ringworm sores. Ringworm is a fungus infection and requires treatment with an anti-fungal ointment or medicine. Try some of the stronger athlete's foot or 'jock itch' ointments, rubbing them thouroughly into each sore. If that does not do the job for you in a couple of weeks, then GO TO A DOCTOR and get a prescription drug!!!

Do NOT scratch the sores, as that will just spread the fungus around.

Signed . . . Been there, done that.

No. Ringworm is a completely different type of fungi than those you can get vaginally. Ringworm is treated via oral medication. Depending on where the ringworm is, you will need separate medication. Scalp ringworm needs to be treated with a special shampoo and pill called Terbinafine. Skin-based ringworm needs to be treated with a course of Itraconazole medication.
