It does not have the ringworm ring... the entire welt is red and about 1/4 cm it is white.... she has not before broken out with bug bites in the past, and she hasnt had a change in diet... she takes claritin chews 24hr and flonase once a day.

hello docmillerrs, the problem your daughter has could only be a minor one,fungal ring worm can be diagnosed by examining scales over the rash,under KOH,and there are certain allergic rashes which appear in circular shape,trasient rashes disappear spontaneousely or may need anti histamines but certain rashes such as Granuloma annulare has to be evaluated for diabetes,and some vasculitc disorders to be diagnosed, by biopsy.Dermatologist consultation definitely helps in diagnosis.
