Hi everyone! First time poster here, though I've read quite a bit on this site :)

My reason for posting is because for the last three weeks I have had this strange spot on my eyebrow that I've never seen before and isn't healing. It's a red circular/oblong shaped spot right on the edge of my eyebrow. It's about half an inch in diameter. It occasionally itches and flakes. I've lost some of the hair that it grew under. It's also sometimes mildly moist. I have no other spots except for one on the back of my scalp that had the same symptoms but healed up on its own. My girlfriend said the one on my scalp looked like ringworm but said the one in my eyebrow looks different. If anyone can point me in the right direction with perhaps a cream or something to try using, I'd greatly appreciate it :)

Here's a couple photos to help. Sorry for the poor quality...
