See a dermatologist!: Any time there is a pigmented lesion (one with color), and sometimes even a non-pigmented lesion, it is necessary to have them examined by a dermatologist. The red ring could simply indicate inflammation but the fact that it may be new to you or is a changing lesion is a real indication to have this examined by a professional. ...Read more

Lyme disease: This is caused by deer-born ticks and can have serious long term consequences if untreated.

A burn caused by flames 2" long ×1" wide on leg. Red ring, white, can see veins & white bumps that itch sometimes. Possible infection?

Burn injury: It's probably a good idea to show this burn wound to a professional. "Redness" around a wound or injury like this could indicate localized infection. If there are 'white' bumps too it could be some exudate (pus) from the wound. If that's a second degree burn though it could also be healing zones that are popping out. You don't want this to get any worse, so I would recc seeing a doctor. ...Read more

See below.: You should have his doctor look at it, if you haven't already. They should be able to tell you the cause and recommend/prescribe the proper treatment and talk about preventative measures. Possible causes are a yeast infection, contact rash, food-related, pinworm. If you have done that already, consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more
