Have round red itchy rashes. Using trimovate cream. Is it ringworm or eczema?

Hi, i have just been to my local doctor as i have a round red itchy rash on my leg and it seems to have spread to my hands. He told me it is either ringworm or eczema and gave me trimovate cream. He also told me i shouldnt be contagios even though its on my hands. I dont suffer from skin conditions . The cream says it treats eczema but not ringworm. What do i do?
