Animal at home?: Dogs and cats can give you ringworn, an annular fungus that usually clears with otc lotrimin. Ask someone you know with pets if they have ever had a rash like yours. If it persists more than 2 weeks see a physician. ...Read more

See a DR: Best for you is a dermatologist. A deer tick is tiny and FEELS much different than a mole. If it is a tick you need to remove it and probably take a single dose of doxy or Minocycline 200mg. ...Read more
