In brief: Ring worm?

Flaking on the outside of the round lesion is a key finding.
If the edges of the circle are some what raised as well, it will be more indicative. Try sending us a picture if you can for confirmation:) Use OTC Lotrinin in the meantime.

In brief: Probably fungal

Try lamisil (terbinafine) antifungal cream on it twice daily for 2-4 weeks for ringworm, which is a fungal infection.
May try clotrimazole(lotrimin) over the counter instead, which is cheaper, but usually have to use it longer to see results. If no improvement in a week, then see your physician for further recommendations or see dr sooner. It is difficult to diagnose skin conditions without seeing them.
