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. A rash of itchy bumps can be of an allergic cause, but there are also non-allergic causes of itchy rashes. ...Read more

My niece has a coin shaped rash on her right buttock that is scaly in the middle, but it's not itchy. Could this be a ringworm?

My niece has a coin shaped rash on her right buttock that is scaly in the middle, but it's not itchy. Could this be a ringworm?

Possible: Generally, I think of ringworm when a lesion has clear center and raised edges. Could be a dry patch of skin called nummular (coin) eczema - this is usually flatter at edges and scales in middle. When in doubt best to have MD look to be sure. Consider using Lotrimen until appt if no sensitive skin problems. If ringworm, it will help. If eczema, the base lotion in cream may help.
