What causes pink circular rash on skin?

I have a rash that looks similar to a Hickey... It started off as a pinkish circular raised spot 5 days ago and today it looks like I either scratched it in my sleep or a hickey... It doesn t hurt or itch at least nothing I notice throughout the day. I went to the dermatologist and he was unsure. Prescribed me a steroid cream. Any thoughts?

Hi!! According to your history it seems to be a case of reaction to crawling or bite of an insect. Still I would recommend you to send a picture of it so that a proper diagnosis iis made.
