dear rhone2207
it appears to be a ringworm.
a trial with a topical antifungal cream twice daily for a few days will help . if diagnostic facility is available then a skin scraping for koh preparation is suggested.
please consult as if it is a ringworm excellent results can be obtained with proper treatment
