It may be a fungus or ring worm as you called it. The area should be biopsed and analyzed to rule out other skin diseases. Go see a Podiatrist or a dermatologist for help.

If you have had no response to ketoconazole anti fungal cream, then it probably isn't a fungus ("ringworm"). See a dermatologist and get a proper diagnosis and treatment.
