Brief Answer: Looks like Fungal infection (ring worm). Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX Welcome to WWW.WWWW.WW and thank you for posting your question. I have seen the photograph of the lesion which you have attached, and it clearly looks like ring worm infection (A type of fungal infection). You would benefit from applying a plain antifungal cream such as meconazole or ketoconazole, twice a day for a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks duration. You might need a prescription to obtain this medicine, so do please consult your dermatologist for the same. Hope this answers your query, please do let me know if you need any clarifications.
