Specializes in

Ring worm: It could be ring worm. Ring worm is not a worm but a fungal infection. It can be treated with a cream. I suggest seeing your primary doctor for confirmation and treatment. Here are some images for comparison. http://insidetheclinic.com/does-ringworm-itch/

Dermatologist: This needs to be examined by your Physician or dermatologist in order to make a diagnosis. Any skin lesion that persists and looks different from anything else on your skin is best checked.The red,scaly,and raised lesion may not be serious but get it checked for peace of mind.
