A ringworm can not go away on it's on it does in fact have to be treated because of several reasons number one a ringworm itches so when you go to scratch it they you touch another part of your body it spreads. It's a fungus and if you keep feeding it with lotion and even natural oil from one's body will also cause it to spread and not wearing the proper clothing on, that's another way it feeds on causing it to spread more. The best thing to do in any case is as soon as you see a ringworm treat it right away with an ant-fungal cream or it will spread and get worse.
