Yes: You have a mycoplasmal chest infection and erythema multiforme until proved otherwise. It's not a perfect fit for what you describe, but this is common and seriously enough that you need to be seen by a specialist, hopefully in derm.
After what?: If you are taking about lyme disease, it is usually 3-7 days after the bite.
Dirrent appearance: The typical lyme lesion is referred to as a bulls eye lesion. It typically has central redness with clearing arounbd it and then another red rim further out. A regular bug bite is ususally uniformly red with clearing throughout.
How can you tell the ?Difference between a Lyme disease circular red skin rash and a regular bug bite?
I have tiny flesh colored rashes on my forearms. They look like goosebumps. Also dry circular patches of dry skin. What could it be?
Doctor can examine: Rashes are hard to describe in words. Usually, a doctor has to look at a rash to see what it might be. For common rashes such as eczema, mild reactions to plants or chemicals, excessive dryness, or little itchy bumps, over-the-counter hydrocortisone 1% cream usually helps. Itchy bumps on many body parts might be an allergic reaction to something or from other causes.
Have few circular rashes on chest, one went away, outer edge has a red, inflamed ring with white center that has really dry skin. Dry skin/worse?
Wish I had picture!: Dermatology questions are so hard without seeing the rash! round rash with central clearing usually are from fungus commonly known as ringworm. Is anybody else have it? Ringworm is itchy and you didn't mention that. I'm curious what you have tried to treat it and if u r using any new soaps or creams. Try an over-the-counter fungal ointment twice/day and for 2 weeks past when u can't see rash.

It : It sounds like a fungal rash (tinea corporis). Try an over the counter anti-fungal cream; Clotrimazole twice a day is a good choice.

Yes: and in the case of dry skin, one may see small raised bumps especially at the extremities. These will often be prevented by using a moisturizer with 3 minutes after bathing. A rash can also be induced by scratching as well. Some skin rashes are caused by allergies (often contact, drug etc) while many are not.
I have allergy, probably to Ponstan 500. The skin rash is nearly gone after 5 days, but now I start to have really bad rashes. What should I do?
Something else?: If the rash improved without treatment only to return a few days after (your dates were not defined), then the problem may be from something other than the drug implicated. If the rash was treated and returned after the treatment was stopped, then the rash (if due to the drug) may last for 2-3 weeks.
