I have spots of ringworm mimicking rashes on my neck, stomach and chest. Some are a hollow circle others are just dots. They don't itch or anything. ?

In brief: Ringworm

Ringworm is a common fungal infection of the skin and is not due to a worm. The medical term for ringworm is tinea.
Ringworm is contagious. It is treated with over the counter creams, usually resolving in 2 to 4 weeks. In extreme cases, oral anti-fungal agents are used. Good luck!
