my elderly indoor cat somehow contracted ringworm and gave it

my elderly indoor cat somehow contracted ringworm and gave it to me--I have been using creams - and some spots went away--but there are a few small spots still remaining and because I basically panic every time I see a red mark of any sort - my dermatologist prescribed 2 doses of fluconazole 150 mg - I took one last Wednesday (sept 26th) and the 2nd three days later on Saturday the 29th 2 questions - how long before it goes away? and also are there any contraindications with lorazepam? I have some and take it occasionally in times of high stress. Thank you.

I have contracted a nasty case of what I think is ringworm , likely from a stray kitten. it was mistreated with a steroid for a few weeks and is not the size of a silver dollar. I was prescribed ketoconazole, which seems to be very slow acting. My dermatologist gave me some samples of Alonquin gel and Alcortin A. Perhaps it s my imagination, but this seems to be working a bit better, though it is still slow. I unfortunately have to go out in public and this is present on my arm , so I need to wear a bandaid but this, in itself is causing a great amount of irritation and inflammation on my sensitive skin inner side of arm. First, is this the very best treatment, and any suggestions on the best kind of bandage?
