Spot on inner elbow, might be ringworm. Using hydrocortisone cream. History of psoriasis. Treatment?

Hello, i have a small spot on my inner elbow . it looks like it MIGHT be ringworm , might not be. It used to be much larger, but I used a hydrocortisone cream (or something like that) and it went down. Now it s back. Is it still ringworm? I have a family history with psoriasis , so I m just trying to hopefully rule that out for the time being. thanks.

welcome to health care magic.
small spots on inner elbow depends on the local factors and family history.
isolated ring worm over elbow is quite unusual.
flexural psoriasis may also exist or present in the same manner.
steroids usually do change the pattern of initial presentation.
hence it is best to stop steroids and visit your nearest dermatologist for a better understanding of your problem and good result.
thank you
take care and always feel free to contact
