Two choices likely:: This could be ringworm (a common fungal infection) or it could be a ring shaped patch of dry skin (annular excema). It can be difficult to sort out. Consider consulting on Prime where you can consult a doc and upload a pic of your rash before initiating the consult if you do video. (videos don't show skin conditions as well as pics taken with a phone). Or you can see your doc. Either one. ...Read more

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

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
