Circular red spots on skin located on upper sternum

I have a red spot on my skin located on the upper sternum. There is no unusual texture or raising in the skin. It has been there a couple of months now. I thought it might be a bruise at first, but it hasn t gone away. I don t feel any different. It s just a spot. sort of round or circular shaped. And there is only one.

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

Some times the fungal infection remains latent and does not manifest with symptoms.

Please get a KOH mount done,

This can confirm the fungal etiology.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
