In brief: Ringworm

Topical application of Clotrimazole (lotrimin af sold in foot care section of most grocery stores) 2-3x's per day till the lesion is totally resolved works very well.
Lamisil (terbinafine) works well also. Lesions usually clear slowly over a week or two if well established. Hair/nail involvement willl not respond to topical therapy.
