Brief Answer:
no major issue, try with Sleep Hygiene

Detailed Answer:
Hi Mr. XXXXX,

2 days sleep disturbance is not a major issue.

Insomnia (sleep disturbance) is of two types:

1. Primary: There is problem of only sleep disturbance and no other physical or psychological problem is there. In this case treatment for sleep problem is needed.

2. Secondary: There is some underlying physical or psychological problem which is responsible for sleep disturbance. In this main treatment is done for underlying problem.

First of all try to follow some measures called 'sleep hygiene' which would help in sleep. You can find the same in below link.

sleepfoundation.org/ask-the-expert/sleep-hygiene

Drinking a cup of warm milk before going to bed helps in 30-40% of patients and they do not need medicines as per my clinical experience.

Treatment of ring worm problem and counseling for stress are needed.

In any case if your problem persists Zolpidem can help but you need to consult doctor for prescription.

Take care.
