Have to see it: Rashes are best diagnosed by having a healthcare professional look at it. Recommend that you see your provider or setup a telehealth consult so that you can be treated with the appropriate medication if needed. Ringworm does have a circular raised appearance, it can itch or burn and spreads easily. There is an antifungal cream that you can use, sometimes takes weeks for it to go away.
