What could be the cause of local skin rash on kids leg, looks like a big ring, that length for few weeks, usually not itch?
Ring worm: The Rash is either numular eczema or ring worm. You can try to treat ring worm by using an OTC ointment for fungi and yeast. Tinactin (tolnaftate) or lotrmin are examples. Use this 2-3 times a day for two weeks and it should fade. The ointment will help the eczema so you are treating both. But the eczema will return because it needs longer treatment. For eczema try hydrocortisone ointment as above
