Raised ring type rash, itchy bumps on thighs. Ringworm?

I have a raised red ring- type rash on inner thigh. it only itches sometimes. looks like ringworm , but it developed after I popped an ingrown hair in the same spot... it went from just a normal red bump that spread into a ring... now there are two itchy bumps next to the ring, and one bump on the other thigh. is it ringworm, or could it be something else. I m pregnant, could it be EAC?

hello dear
thanks for writing to us,

Red ring like slightly itchy lesion goes in favour of tinea,
that is a fungal infection.
trauma to hair follicle may be an associated thing.
please apply oint clotrimazole, twice daily,
you will get relief in 15 days

wishing you good health.
Thank you
