In brief: Ringworm
You should see a doctor to be sure it is ringworm.
Lots of different skin diseases can mimic ringworm. You can technically try using an antifungal shampoo. Usually scalp ringworm requires oral medication. This medication can affect your liver so you need to be monitored by a doctor. If you are pregnant you need to consult with your dr to be sure it is safe. I hope this helps.
