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. ...Read more

However, there are other skin disorders that can cause rashes. These are usually not serious unless ...Read more

Circular rash: Sounds like ring worm which is a fungal infection and treated with topical medications your md can provide. Your md should see these to confirm the diagnosis though ad be sure it isn't a sign of a more serious condition. ...Read more

This may be nummular: Nummular or "coin shaped" eczema is commonly mistaken for "ringworm" however when anti fungals are not effective that diagnosis must be reconsidered. Nummular eczema just as atopic dermatitis is very pruritic (itchy) and responds to topical steroids and moisturizers that contain fillagrin by products, such as cetaphil rtestorderm. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

YES: Sounds like ringworm ( tinea corporis) - you can use over the counter lamisil.If not resolving in 1 week- see a physician to rule out a similar condition called granuloma annulare; however the itching suggests a fungalk skin infection. ...Read more
