Multiple small and itchy red circles. What can they be?

I have multiple small itchy red circles. They dont seem to bother me very much until i touch them, then it burns and itches and becomes mildly bothersome.. My daughters have showed the same small circles- one daughter it doesnt phase and hers disappear at random, the other daughter is itchy as well and hers are still there. We are not the only three in the house, but my wife shows no signs. What could this possibly be. We have been researching pictures and symptoms for about an hr and have come up with nothing.

From your history and description I guess all of you must be having fungal infection called tinea circinata.
You must take a course of anti fungals like tab. terbinafine 250 mg per day for 15 days
Apply clotrimazole cream for two weeks and take anti histamines at night. If not better do not hesitate to consult a dermatologist as visual diagnosis is the best.
