In brief: A ring
Rngworm is called "ringworm" for a good reason.
The lesions are ring-shaped. Usually one can see clearing in the center with some flakiness at the raised rim. But some patients can also have less obvious and more involved lesions. And, ringworm can also be indistinguishable from some other common rashes. A simple skin scraping is usually diagnostic.
