See your doc: The very best thing to do with an "unknown rash" is to see your doc and find out what it is. Then you can treat it properly. Just mixing up a concoction of stuff you have lying around is a very bad idea.

See derm: This is a little overkill and will work only if this is a fungal rash. From what i can see in the tiny photo this may or may not be fungal. Could be erythema marginatum - although face is unusual, annular lichen planus, granuloma annulare, etc. Best bet is to see dermatologist...
