I would go and see your doctor, it probably won't take much to cure it but you will most likely need a prescription.

It's not embarresing, promise. My sister and I have both had a ringworm before.

Maybe you could see a dermatologist?

Not around so much now that school's started

"Live a good life.
If there are gods and they are just,
then they will not care how devout you have been,
but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.
If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them.
If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

A dermatologist or doctor will both be able to prescribe you a stronger cream that will be able to clear this up within a week or so. It's nothing to be embarrassed about most people will experience ringworm or something similar.

Remember you're not a doormat
Remember you are valuable
Remember you are repairable
Remember you matter
Remember they don't."

You really shouldn't be embarrassed. Your health is important and ringworm will keep spreading unless you treat it right. So if your cream isn't working I suggest seeing a doctor.
