Itchy,circular patches sounds like ringworm to me. You might have to try the clotrimazole treatment again for a few weeks and make sure you scrub the skin prior to application to remove dead skin cells. First, I think you should consult a dermatologist who could perform a skin scraping or other procedures to positively identify the problem.

Thanks Mari...
I thought of ring worm, but I also thought of a staph infection because of pictures I viewed on the Internet.
I don't know how I would get either one to be honest with you.

I will keep up the cream you mentioned until I can see my doc after New Years.
Thank you!
