Sounds like it could be ring worm. I'd have it checked by a doctor to know for sure. It could just be an irritation that happens to be in a circle. It is probably a ring…worm; however, you should see your doctor and get some medication. Don't waste your money on a doctor. Just go to your local pharmacy and ask him what he thinks it is and and see if he can give you something over the counter for it. Most Pharmacist know just as much as doctors. If the center is clear and it is a ring shape and has bad itching it probably is ringworm. The old and proven remedy is to soak a cottonball in Clorox Bleach. Thoroughly soak the area let dry leave it on a while. This does burn, but 1 time should be enough to smother the worm. Ringworm is not a worm. It is a fungal infection slightly under the skin. Do not use bleach on your body, it's for your clothes or cleaning up disgusting things on floors or counters. Go buy some antifungal over the counter medication. if problem persists, consult your doctor. As a retired cosmetologist & instructor, & mother of 2 sets of now adult twins and a 13 yr old as well, I think I might be able to help on the ringworm thing. It is a fungal infection, but from my experience and I have had plenty of it, over the counter medicines don't work, especially if it has already developed the full ring, for every over the counter med you continue to try and every home remedy you try, it will continue to get larger and larger, and as it does, it does damage to the skin tissue, nails (if involved), and especially any hair folicles. The only true treatment I have ever found successful, included antibiotic creams with INTERNAL Prescription Medication/antibiotics at the same time. (Depending on it's severity, and strain, it can in some cases require medications that use poisons in which cases the blood / medication levels of the patient have to be monitored closely. Getting a correct diagnosis and correct treatment is best done through a dermatologist not a regular MD. I have had one of my children end up with minor permanent damage to hair follicles, and hair no longer grows where the infection occurred, thankfully it was an underneath area, don't wait to seek out a doctor to find out for sure the sooner it's treated, the less complicated the treatment needs to be- if it's treated both internally and externally at the same time. I agree with the above statement except treating it with an antibiotic. Antibiotics are only for bacteria. Since it was stated that ringworm is caused by a fungus, antibiotics may further worsen the problem. However, one fungus is treated by antibiotics, Pneumocystis jiroveci, but that is only seen in immunocompromised people such as AIDS patients. It should be treated internally (terbinafine or itraconazole) and externally (terbinafine 1% cream - Lamisil). Do not suck on a tube of Lamisil for internal treatment. It's not the same thing. Since you need a prescription for the internal medication, you might as well go to the doctor anyway. Most of the above answers say ringworm, but i had this red patch on the inside of my arm. In fact, I get it every spring. It was nothing. Just some sort of irritation of the skin. If it's in the shape of a circle, not raised, white if your tan and red if your not then it may not be ringworm. I am speaking from my own personal experience, because I've never had ringworm. I went to my dermatologist for this one. But the skin on my chest leading up to my neck is very sensitive and there is a fungus that lives on just about everyone and is normally introduced through family members (the close proximity). I have several perfectly round, sometimes itchy, spots. My doctor gave me a cream that's usually used for such fungal things as say ringworm. It's called 'Oxistat', I am to apply it once a day for three weeks or so and can stop when I see that the spots are gone. However, because my skin is so sensitive in this area they will most likely reappear sometime in the future. Normally from sweat or over exposure to the sun. Anyway, just incase anyone was wondering if it could be anything besides ringworm, here's your answer. Circle with red circle inside? If so get checked for Lyme disease.
What is a rash in the shape of circles some small and some bigger on the inside of the thigh and how do you treat it?
In a majority of cases, rashes in the shape of circles of varying size are symptoms of ringworm. These circles are typically a light to dark pink, occasionally a darker red. A… good treatment of ringworm would be a cream, brand name of Lamasil. Of course, Lamasil should be used as directed in the instructions and indications. Bulls eye shaped redness (a circle within a circle) could be a sign of Lymes Disease. Check with your health care provider.
I went to the doctors for the same thing. Its called pityriasis rosea and the spots are oval shaped pink spots on the trunk that don't go past the neckline and generally are p…atterened in a Christmas tree fanning fashion. The spots don't hurt and usually are preceded by a herald patch (maybe one or two of these spots) before the full virus erupts. The cause is unknown and is not a fungus or bacteria, it is some sort of virus whose origins are unknown and its not contagious.The spots wil clear as quickly as they appeared within 12 weeks. There is only medication if the spots are causing you discomfort. Otherwise just be patient and wait and one morning youll wake up and they will be gone, mine went that way.
Stomach rash Honestly, a lot of things could explain a rash. It would be helpful to know more about it, but here are some possibilities: 1) Allergic reaction - usually a gene…ralized rash, but sometimes localized, especially around the trunk. Have you eaten anything new, or been exposed to something new in your environment, like fumes or chemichal dust? Are you on any new medications? 2) Virus - Many viruses can cause rashes or fevers that produce rashes. Do you feel ill? Have you had any other symptoms, like nausea, vomiting, fever, chills? 3) Bugs - do you have fleas or spiders in your home? Does someone you have recently visited have them? 4) Pets - puppies and kitties are cute, but they sometimes have dander that can cause an allergic rash. Or they can have bugs (see above.) 5) Shingles - Shingles have become more common in recent years, or it at least seems that way. Shingles are caused by the reactivation of the chicken pox virus and attack a particular nerve branch in your spine. They always affect only one side of the body (left or right) and never cross the midline. This is because they come out on the area of skin which is supplied by one particular nerve. The rash may affect any part of the body, including head and limbs. It may thus appear as a band around one side of the chest or abdomen, or down an arm or leg. It is usually a very painful rash that will blister and burst, and typically people can't bear clothes touching the affected area. The blisters usually burst and crust over within a week and sometimes leave pale scars. If the mystery rash persists, or gets worse, please see your doctor.
What could cause a rash on your stomach from your waist up as well as on your arms but not on your face?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nMAYBE ALLERGIE TO THE METAL PART OF YOUR BELT\n. \n Answer \n. \nIt could be hives. I took a medication that I didn't know I was allerg…ic too and had hives (diagnosed.) It was on my stomach to waist and lighter on my arms. It could also be your laundry detergent or softener you are using on your clothes. Change that to see if this is the cause. Also check out any body lotions you may be using. Usually "Aveeno" (made with oatmeal) is the best for one's skin and has a lower risk of allergies.
Answer If it is blister type it could be one of a variety of things such as dermititis, an allergic reaction or even herpes. You should really have it looked at t…o determine the exact nature.
There are various conditions where you could get a rash on your stomach, but the most common is contact dermatitis. Many people are slightly allergic to the metal that is foun…d in back of the buttons on pants and belt buckles. If this is the case, an easy way to correct it is to put a piece of tape over the inside of the button so it does not come into direct contact with your skin.
I get those from time to time, and mine is ecsema. The doc gave me a recently released ointment and it clears up in about a day (completely). Stays gone 6 to 8 months.
Tick bite - Lyme's Disease possibility.
a rash comes in many shapes and sizes.
It sounds like it could be ring worm, which will require an anti fungal cream to get rid of it. Also try to keep the inner thighs as sweat free as possible.
The rash on both side of the stomach could be as a result of an infection. It might be either an external or internal problem. It is important to see a doctor ASAP for cor…rect diagnosis.
I think Some kind of Ringworm
It might be ringworm. If it's just like, a circle that's not filled in, it's ringworm. If it's a filled in circle, it might be a normal rash that's, well, circle-shaped.
Ringworm I think
