Welcome to Healthcare Magic

You probably are suffering from skin infection or Pityriasis rosea. You need to keep the area clean and dry. Apply Calamine lotion for time being, better to get it looked at by a Dermatologist for confirmation of diagnosis and proper treatment.

small ,red ring look like candidial infection and very common in diabetes pt
