I have these round red marks showing up on my legs and arms. They don't hurt and they look like a cigarette burn. Do you know what they are and or what causes them?

In brief: That

That sounds like an infectious or allergic cause.
Certain infections such as ringworm can cause round marks. Also some allergic reactions can cause round lesions with clear centers. Please have this rash immediately evaluated. If you develop increased rash, fever, vomiting, shortness of breath, or change in rash then you must be seen as an emergency.
