My son has a reddish dry patch of skin on his thigh. He went to a Walgreens clinic when it came up about two months ago. They told him ring worm, but it doesn t itch or burn. It hasn t gotten bigger or spread. He has been treating it but it is not going away. He doesn t have insurance and he is worried it might be some type of infection.
