Dermatologist 's  Response
from the description provided, its hard to think of a particular diagnosis. Only a clinical examination may help in diagnosin your skin concern. However it couldbe ring worm, granuloma annulare, porokeratosis, erythema annulare centrifugum, annular psoriasis etc. As you can see there could be many skin diseases presenting with similar lesions, so a dermatologist's visit is mandatory.
Please meet your dermatologist for an expert opinion.

Hope this helped.
Take care
