Infection: It is hard, if not impossible to definatively diagnose rashes over the computer, but your descrition sounds like it may be a fungal infection such as tinae corporis (also known as common "ring worm"). I don't like the term "ring worm" because it has nothing to do with a worm, but as stated would be a simple fungal infection. See a dr. To get a proper diagnosis and treatment. Good luck. ...Read more

Itchy?: This sounds like it might be contact dermatitis.... your skin may be reacting to something it came in contact with, like poison ivy, metals, detergents, etc. If it is itchy, try hydrocortisone 1% cream. If that doesn't help, or it is very warm, painful, spreading, or draining pus, it may be infected and you should get it checked by a doctor. ...Read more
