Hello I'm Dr Chip

Could you please post a photo for me on this page?

Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Got it--thanks

Does it itch?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It did Saturday to Monday constantly and now just periodically
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

OK

It looks fungal--as in related to ringworm

Nothing too serious though

You can try over the counter clotrimazole cream twice a day for a week and that should clear it up

If it doesn't, you'll need prescription ketoconazole cream

Please let me know if you need any more information

Typically, isn't ringworm in the shape of a ring?
Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 1 month ago.

Usually but as I said this is related to ringworm but not specifically ringworm--still fungal though
