Hi there...I can understand your concern. Ringworm also called and tinea cruris is caused by fungal infection. It is important to diagnose it correctly first. Because few other diseases also can look similar. And treatment will be different. Also it is important other treatment fungal infections with only plain antifungal creams and oral medications. If she has used steroids, it will subside it temporarily and then exacerbate later. So kindly consult a dermatologist for further evaluation and treatment.
