Circular sore on leg, dry looking, redness. What could it be?

I have a circular sore that came up on my leg about a month ago. It is a dry looking sore. It is perfectly round, red in color and is dry and scaly in the middle. Its a little smaller than a dime and will not go away. It looks the same everyday with no change. I had a bad bruise in the same area back in july that I can still see and the sore is next to it.

Thanks for the query.

you might be suffering from a fungal infection.

The other possibility is single plaque psoriasis.

Treatment with oral and topical anti fungals may give you a good result.

A biopsy might be required for a closer diagnosis.

Please meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
