What do red rashes on the arms indicate?

I have been sober from alcohol for three weeks. During my heavy drinking, I hated rash like marks on both arms. Some look like round, deep red marks Any idea what they are and how I can get rid of them? They seem to be getting worse. tThank you for your time. J. F.

General & Family Physician 's  Response

Your symptoms seem to be related to ringworms which is a fungal infection. I recommend you to take antifungal medication such as Fluconazole daily for three days. I also recommend you to use an antifungal cream for local application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
