Round Ring Rash
Have few circular rashes on chest, one went away, outer edge has a red, inflamed ring with white center that has really dry skin. Dry skin/worse?
Wish I had picture!: Dermatology questions are so hard without seeing the rash! round rash with central clearing usually are from fungus commonly known as ringworm. Is anybody else have it? Ringworm is itchy and you didn't mention that. I'm curious what you have tried to treat it and if u r using any new soaps or creams. Try an over-the-counter fungal ointment twice/day and for 2 weeks past when u can't see rash.

See a dermatologist: Rashes are hard to diagnose without examining the patient. As you mentioned it can be a ringworm which is not responding to over the counter anti fungal cream. It also can be something related to contact dermatitis or psoriasis. I would recommend you consult a physicianSee 1 more doctor answer
My 8 month has a round red rash on her right cheek, is it eczema or ring worm? It doesn't seem to bother her and gives away with cortisone lotion
Likely not ringworm: Skin rashes are common in infants & a single patch of rash can be a lot of things. From drool rash to ringworm to allergic reaction, etc. If it improves with hydrocortizone it is probably not ringworm. It doesn't sound worrisome at this point so you can bring it up with your pcp at the next scheduled visit.

Rash: This sound like pityriasis rosae. Starts with 1 big patch then spreads allover. It is caused by a virus & is a self limited condition that will resolve spontaneously over tIme. It is best if you show it to your Dr to make sure. Your health comes 1st. Good luck.

Generalized rash: The differential diagnosis of a generalized rash is large. You should schedule an appointment to visit a dermatologist as soon as possible. Certain factors are important such as whether the rash is raised or flat, itchy or not, involving the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet, or not. If the rash started in one location and spread to another, describe it to them, and your history and meds
Could be infection: (tinea infection). See your physician to be sure. Other, not infectious conditions can cause circular rashes on the backs of the hands that don't need treatment. Your dermatologist can sort these things out.
This: Would require more history, visualization of lesions at minimum to try to diagnosis it properly. Without knowing what it is - it would be hard to recommend a treatment. Take care.
Depends: It's hard to say what type of rash you have without further information and looking at your rash itself.
