It doesn't appear to be ringworm because in ring worm sudden appearance of lesion is not present.There are mutiple causes of the itchy rash and sometimes we are not able to find out the exact cause of the problem. You have not told us since how log the rash is present.You can take tablet loratadine one to two times per day till the itching is present. If it is increasing then can show to a dermatologist.
