Circular rash: May be fungal like ringworm. You can try over the counter anti-fungal medications. Or may be eczema due to dry skin or food /environmental allergies or granuloma annulare which needs steroids, sometimes you can first layer the antifungal and then on top the steroid cream or get a cream that contains both by prescription f/u /w/doc

You might want to try Clotrimazole 1% or other topical anti fungal cream for 10 days. If that doesn't wipe it out, better show it to a doc for definitive evaluation and treatment. ...Read more
