In brief: Varies

But as the name suggests, it is often in round lesions.
The patches are typically scaly or bumpy, often with central clearing. They may be itchy. They may be pink or may be more or less flesh-colored. See your doctor if you are not certain.

In brief: Ringworm

Red rash with a sharp border; sometimes the outer border is ring shaped.
Has nothing to do with worms; actually caused by fungus (eg tinea or candida).

The "ringworm" may seem like the center is clearing while the outer marins are spreading outward. It may itch.
