Been there for a few weeks and hasn't bothered me but tonight it's itchy. Anyone know what it could be?

Ringworm I think. Not a worm but a fungal infection.

My first thought was ringworm.

Yes it looks like ringworm. You need to see your GP for treatment

Ringworm. You can get treatment from a pharmacist.

If it’s ringworm I think that’s one of those things which is highly contagious.

If it's ringworm it's just treatment with Canesten cream but it takes a good few weeks

It could be discoid eczema. Best to get it checked OP.

Looks like ringworm. Go to go and they'll prescribe a antifungal/ hydrocortisone cream iirc when I had it
