Small ring on inner leg, seems to be growing in diameter, looks red and is dry to touch. What could this be?

Good morning Doctor, I noticed a small ring, about 1cm in diameter on the inner side of my leg, about 4 inches away from my ankle, months ago. I noticed it sometime ago that it has grown in diameter. It is now at 2-3 centimeters in diameter. It is slightly red/pink and it is dry to the touch. What could this be? It isn t itchy unless I scratch at it.
