Ringworm or Nummullar Eczema

How do you tell the difference? I don't know what to do - it could be either, according to the various factors that can cause it...I have been applying anti-fungal cream to it for several days, to treat ringworm; but it is spreading and getting itchy and red in other places now. It kind of seems like, every time I apply the ringworm lotion: it gets a little bit more itchy in areas around it. So it's growing and growing. Can anyone please tell me: does this mean that my rash is NOT in fact, ringworm? And if it is not, why would I develop something like eczema at the age of 38, when I have never had it before and no family history?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Eczema itches because when skin is raw, fungus and bacteria attacks.

In just only fungal infections, relief instantly comes after applying anti-fungal + steroids other wise you have Eczema.

thank you, and I beleive you're right! However, I must have been using the wrong kind of cream because since I posted that I got different cream, this kind is Lamisil AT. It is making it BETTER! the big spot is clearing up, the other three little ones are also getting better. And the Lamisil feels so good. It sooths, doesn't burn. But I don't rule out ezcema - as a complication! So I also started a moisturizing routine with Aveena products, and anti-bacterial skin protectant lotion. This also, seems to help. I'll bet you a million bucks, I have both. Also, I read the the dermophyts (or whatever) carrying the fungi, are in hair and nails; so I cut my hair and nails short, bleached my hair, and started using Selsun Blue. I also read that using acetone before applying the anti-fungal cream helps it 'take' and that it's important to wash it first! All news to me. I got this information from a wrester's website. Anyone suffering from ringworm should read this, it's a great article and really informative, at metrowrestling dot org slash ringworm.html .
