Tisa85:   Have you seen a dermatologist?  They can take a punch biopsy to see what is going on.

If this is the fourth or fifth time you’ve gotten it, I’d go to a doctor to get it checked out. And go before it goes away. Just in case!

Maybe see a doctor to really know and get some antibiotics (if needed) for this one and for the future?

Tisa85:  From the picture, it looks like ringworm. But I would doubt that is it since its been going away on its own. Hmmmm.

Just because you survived doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go to the doctor.

Go to the doctor.

oEver have a bad case of chicken pox? Looks like shingles to me. I get the same thing in the same spot on my stomach and it is usually brought out for me, by stress.

Get a biopsy from a Derm. could be a basal cell carcinoma from the looks and sound of it. Or it could be just a random rash. Get it checked out though

Ring worm was also the first thing that popped into my mind, but since this is a reoccurring thing you should definitely see a doctor.

Tisa85:  Good idea. It may or may not be, but the symptoms are similar to mine. Good luck!

Magicmc:  Those are some interesting extremes. 

Tisa85:  It looks like ringworm, which is a fungal infection. It is easily treatable, but also VERY contagious. So go to the doctor, get some antifungal medication, and be careful not to let anyone else come into contact with it (and be careful not to spread it on yourself either). If you don’t know where it could have come from – get your pets checked out. Usually you catch it from other humans, but it is possible to get it from cats, dogs, etc.

I’m getting over the shingles now. It looks like my patch. It started with I thought was just a bug bite (itchy and red) then the next day I thought A was like 15 bug bites. Then the “bites” turned to blisters. I got into dermatalogist who confirmed it was shingles. 

Get it checked out ASAP! If it’s sooner, they say the quicker you’re on meds the less pain and length of rash you’ll have. I took 4 days and though it’s just about done (been sick for 2 weeks now) it hurt and was so uncomfortable! I couldn’t sleep. I was in pain, bad.
