Rashes in hip during winter, looks like ring worm. Possible reason?

Hi I have this rash that seems to appear on my hip. I get it every winter. It almost looks like ring worm but it isnt and it pops up in random places like my hip and inner thigh I had it checked out when I was younger and the cream made it worse. I never went back but I am curious as to why I get it every year in the same spots.

Hi there.

From your history & clinical description, it does appear to be some sort of gyrate or annular erythematous lesion & is most likely related to some sort of xerosis or dry skin condition hence its appearance in the winters'

Dermatology however is a very 'visual' field & as such, this rash needs to be viewed & it would be great if you could upload a clear digital photograph of the lesion onto this website using the upload data icon.

In the interim, please do use a good quality moisturizer atop wet skin eg Cetaphil moisturizing lotion & this should help allievate the problem.

For a pucca diagnosis am afraid a skin biopsy may be required.

Cheers & Good Luck!
