Question Help! Kitten is losing hair!

Hi,
I adopted a kitten a week ago. He had ringworm as a baby, but the shelter told me that the ringworm was completely gone. Today I was petting him and noticed that he had a crusty scab on his head. When I pulled his fur apart to investigate further, the scab fell off, taking fur with it and revealing a bald patch. I continued to feel around, and noticed 3 or 4 more scabs just like the first one.

Could it just be a residual consequence from his ringworm? Or is he having a relapse? I don't have any other pets, but if he is having a relapse what should I do (besides take him to the vet and get meds) to protect myself from infection?

Thanks for reading!
