Hi, Ringworm infection spreads from one person to another through swimming pools, bath mats and bath tubs. So please do not swim with the infection if untreated . The infection is not contagious after 48 hrs of treatment . Please consult a dermatologist for the treatment and commence swimming whenever he recommends . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
