hi, i've been worried about the raised red bumps in the shape of a ring on my lower leg.
i havent been able to get to the doctors yet
i was thinking maybe it was spider bites or something, but it is in a perfect circle shape.
the raised bumps have got scabs on them now and the skins beginning to look flakey.
what do you think it is? im getting really worried

  • Maybe Ringworm. If it is, nothing to worry about. Regards

  • Go to "dermatology rash pictures" and see if your circle matches ringworm. If so, you can get over the counter cream. Ask the pharmacist for the name.
