Hi,

Yes ring worms can be difficult to treat. It seems you have tried all drugs It will be better try by checking again in by doing lab tests for fungi. It may not be ring work but another skin disease. It will be necessary to consult a dermatologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
