In brief: Depends

You may need stronger treatment (oral medicine) or it may not be ringworm.

In brief: Ring worm

Lamisil (terbinafine) cream should be used for 4 weeks.
Is over the counter. Maybe lesion needs scraping and look at it in the microscope. If no improvement consider different diagnosis or dermatology visit.
