Yes: Assuming your diagnosis is correct lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an effective treatment for fungal infections (ringworm). However "ringworm" infections involving the penis are somewhat unusual. Yeast infections would be a more likely fungal infection involving the penis and yes lotrimin (clotrimazole) would work for that too.

Possibly: Any time there is question of whether a skin lesion on the penis is an std, it must be seen and evaluated. Not all skin lesions are std's but visual inspection is very important in addition to clinical history. Also, some skin lesions may resolve spontaneously and are an std, making one believe that everything is okay.If there is a chance it may a sexually contracted lesion, it needs to be checked.

Needs to be examined: This sounds like a congenital problem. Needs to be examined to determine if a previous circumsion has created scar tissus that needs removal. The urologist will be able to make a very quick determination if this is a surgical problem.
