Is it just a ring shape or is it all red & raised? If its in a ring shape it could be ringworm but if its aal red & raised it could be eczema.My dd2 had little patches of red circles on her legs & arms,when i took her to the dr. they told me it was eczema & gave me some cream.Its worth getting her looked at.

Sorry Lisa. I'm afraid I have no idea. Have you tried calling NHS direct? They might have an answer for you? (thought I wouldn't hold my breath)

i dont know what it is, but it wont be a strawberry mark, they are born with those, my DS has 6 of them and they are bright red and much more raised.

Ringworm isn't a worm though, it's a fungal infection which is really easy to treat. It's very infectious, though, so make sure you haven't got it too.
