I always tell myself that I will not do this on line but here ?I go as I would like to do my best to help you. This is just a photo so one can not be sure and if you have treated this the picture might have changed but this does not look like ringworm, it looks like granuloma annulare.  This can be treated with topical steroids and usually resolves.

looks like granuloma annulare... would advise you to see a board certified dermatologist to confirm and discuss treatment options
