Have rash like spot on the thigh. No itching or no burning. Could it be ring worm infection?

I had a white pimple looking spot on my thigh and I popped it, it whelped up and went away for a week w a scab where it popped. Nothing came out. A week later I have a red circle that does not itch , burn , or bother me in any way. It also has irregular boarder. I m not sure how to treat it not knowing if it s a ring worm , which it s not the classic case or a bite of some type.

Dermatologist 's  Response

Hiya there. From your description it does appear to be one of the 'gyrate' erythematous skin conditions. More often than not, it could be a 'reaction pattern' following some sort of insect bite reaction as if it were fungal origins, there would have been some discomfort. Might i suggest using a topical combination cream of a hydrocortisone & antifungal applied twice daily for a 3-5 day period. It should clear up completely. If not, then you need to fix an appointment with your nearest dermatologist & have it biopsied if only for academic interest. I envisage no problems & nothing serious to write home about. Good Luck & Godspeed!
