The skin lesion which appears to be in the shape of ring is likely to be a fungal infection.

A fungal infection takes around 4-6 weeks for disappearing .So i would suggest that you continue with the medication .If the lesion in 4 weeks doesn't seem to be alright get her examined by a dermatologist who will examine closely and treat accordingly.

Take Care.
