Itchy red rings on the face and near armpit. What are these?

Hello, I have these red rings about 1 1/2 all around my neck , I ve had them for about 8 months and have done nothing about it, because they were small and didn t bother me. Since its gotten hot here in ny, these rings are now very itchy and have doubled in size around my neck, and 1 new ring is near my right armpit. Any ideas as to what they may be?
