In brief: May be yeast

Yeast infections of the skin (tinea coporis, ring worm) commonly appear as circular lesions, often in moist areas of the body.
They slowly grow over time, leading to a reddish scaly ring with a clearing of the center. They can be treated with over the counter antifungal creams. Discuss it with your doctor to see what they think it may be.
