This is definitely not serious. It may be a rash of the flu that she had last week. Please wait for a week and observe. Apply calamine lotion over it for a week. If it does not subside in a week, then consider taking her to the Dermatologist.

It may be ring worm as you say. Worm infestations are common in 2 year olds.

Hope this helps.
