In brief: Yes

Yes, so it needs to be treated with an antifungal cream. Try an over the counter product until you can see a medical professional.

In brief: Yes

Ringworm (tinea corporis) is actually caused by a fungus.
There are no 'worms' involved. This fungal infection can be spread by direct contact with infected skin.
