Have itchy, red spots on legs. Looks raised, flaky and spreading. How to get cured?

Hi I have had this red spot on my leg for about 2 weeks now it is the size of a dime and was really itchy when I first noticed it I thought it was just a blemish but it has since dried out, however it no longer itches. It is slightly raised and flaky it does not look to me like the pictures of ring worms I have seen. I am now getting another one again starts off looking like a pimple with no head and a few days later turns into this dry patch this one has not itched at all please help me to figure out what it is

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

The picture may vary at times.

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.
