Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Circle rash are usually related to a fungal infection called ringworm.
I suggest using an antifungal cream for local application such as Clotrimazole cream.
I also suggest using Fluconazole 150 mg for three days,9ne tablet a day.

Hope my answer was helpful.

Kind regards!
