Thanks a lot for your input. I am sorry to hear about your problem. I am going to address your primary concern but later you can ask anything you want. Even I would get tense in this situation but I would like to reassure you that this is likely to be a ringworm infection. You should apply a mixture of over the counter available hydrocortisone cream mixed with Clotrimazole cream twice daily for 2 weeks and you are going to be alright. I reassure you as I would have reassured my family member that there is nothing serious like cancer behind this. If symptoms persist, see your doctor as sometime oral drugs are needed. Lesions like granuloma annulare can also present like this.
