Spots? Dry skin? Ringworm?

I have a German Shepherd mix that has these weird dry spots around his eye. One started about a few months ago and we were told to keep the spot clean so I use a wet rag and wipe his face daily. It seemed to help and then all of a sudden it got a little bit bigger. Then a week ago I noticed a spot in front of his right ear about the size of a half dollar. It looks dark and jagged. The hairs are still growing out of it so we shaved around the area and started applying a hydrogen peroxide solution to see if it would help, which was recommended to do. It's dark, almost blackish gray and looks like a patch of really dry crackly skin, he has one on his elbow that he's had for ever since we got him and it looks like that but I only noticed it recently. No definite dip in center or red ring to indicate ringworm. Not sure what else is could be. Any help appreciated. And a vet is not possible unless I travel to a big city, because the vet here has been no help.

Could be ringworm, my cat, and two out of 4 dogs got it and all resolved on there own, I got lucky. But what I did do was clean the spots with bentidine (sp?) twice a day. Also kept the house really clean and washed all bedding and vacuumed a lot. Make sure to wash your hands after cleaning or touching the area.
