Have a vet check them. that would be logical to do. He should give you something to clear it up. It sounds like it is contagious.

Ringworm is a misnomer. It's not caused by a worm and it's not necesarrily round. Have a vet look at it, or at a minimum take a closeup picture and take it the him/her/it and get a professional opinion. Or treat it as ringworm and see if it doesn't clear up.
