Is it ringworm or a pimple?

I have a ringworm looking rash on my stomach, chest and back.. I went to the doctor and he said its either ringworm or excema and prescribed an anti fungal and steroid cream. Nothing seems to be clearing up and now i have something that very much looks like a pimple on my cheek but am worried its still the ringworm. Does ringworm often look like pimples?

Ringworm won't look like a pimple- so I don't think the pimple is really associated, it's like just a pimple that will heal up.  

If you haven't seen it clear up with the creams your doctor gave you, I'd recommend heading back to your doctor to have a second look- I'd lean more towards it's likely eczema if the cream you were given didn't clear it up.
