In brief: Pruritic skin rashes

Based on your age and description, the most common skin rash that are red, itch, and scaly is atopic dermatitis.
Psoriasis could be similar but it is not as itchy. Either case, you can try to apply otc Hydrocortisone cream to the lesions a few times a day plus moisturizer generously to always keep your skin moist. If it does not improve or not completely resolve, you would need to see a doctor.

Why don't you think it's ringworm especially if it looks like ringworm. Best to go see your doc.
