red spots

I really need some advice, please;

Something like 3 or 4 weeks ago I noticed a big, red spot on the back of my leg, above my knee; It was of regular shape, but at first I thought I just scratched myself (which I do unconsciously when I am nervous) so I didn't worry so much; But it didn't go away, I started searching on the internet; I thought that looks similar to the pictures of ringworms; So I went to the pharmacy and got something for fungi;

However, this thing didn't go away and I realized that something similar is growing on my back - just smaller; I went to the doctor and she gave me Ketoderm - shampoo to use once all over my body and ketoconazole teva to use twice everyday; She said they would be almost gone in 3 days, but to treat them for 2 weeks. I washed all my clothes very well too. But they did not disappear and more of small spots started showing all over my back and my chest, neck and belly - I am not sure if it is the same thing though; They have similar shape, but are much smaller and some of them looks very dried out in the center;

I went to the doctor again and this time she gave me Diprosalic pommade - to use 2 times a day, and to keep using ketoconazole teva once a day; It is two days since I started using it, but I realized there is even more of them showing up, and the old one don't seem to care for the treatment;

I am getting married in 2 months and I am really afraid of being all spotted around. I don't think my doctor really knows what she is doing and I am just spending money and time for her experiments with the drugs.

Can anyone please help!? I will appreciate it very much!
