Ring worm like spots

LauraElliott posted:
About a year and nine months ago my daughter, who is now 5, developed a spot on her left leg below her knee. We had suspected it was ring worm and tried using an antifungal cream on it, which had no effect. The spot increasingly started to grow from the size of a nickle to a little bigger than the size of a golf ball. Along with this one spot growing she has developed one on her left cheek, one on her inner left leg near her ankle, a small one near the one below her knee, and one on the outer part of her left foot. She also runs fevers for no apparent reason causes blistering within the sores and makes them worse, she has constant body aches, the doctor's have said sometimes her white blood count is a little low or high, and she gets sick a lot. What could be the cause of this?
