Go to the doctor on your own, it sounds like something that should really be looked at by a professional, it could be something that doesn't respond to the type of treatment you can give at home, or it could be something completely different.
The thing is though, if you've had it for that long, you really should go to the doctor no matter what.

If you are unable to get to a doctor at the moment, pop into your pharmacy and have a talk with the pharmacist and they will have loads of treatments you can try.

They might even know exactly what it is. But if you CAN convince your dad to bring you to the doctor, do so.

But I reckon the pharmacist should be able to help! Good luck.

it could just be a simple skin problem like excema (sorry my spelling is rubbish i hope you get what that means), when ever i get excema rashes it looks like ringworm but isn't so needs to be treated with steroids which you would never put on actual ringworn

all of this really means you have to go ask a medical professional as well it could be anything lol

Another option you have if you cannot get to a doctor on your own is to make a trip to your school nurse's office. They may have an idea of what is going on or at least convince your dad to take you to the doctor.

If it's itching or uncomfortable, antihistamines (benadyrl) may help you, though as a warning, it can make you drowsy.

When you go to school. Have a nurse look at it, and then they might make you go to the doctor since your lazy dad won't take you
