It appeared on the back of my calf about 6 weeks ago. It was much more bright red and raised and itchy and I thought it might be a burst blood vessel (was pregnant) but doctor said no. Been leaving it alone, it's not itching and has faded but still there. Tried sudocream. Any ideas??

Looks like ringworm to me

My Dd says that looks like ringworm too ( she is 23 and bought a Guinea pig that had ringworm which she caught on her upper leg ) it's easily treatable though as its a fungal infection - go back to your GP.

Thanks, i was thinking fungal infection. Ive got daktarin and canesten in the house, might try one of them. Just had a baby so don't fancy an extra trip out to GP.

Def ringworm I've had it a couple of times. Anti fungal will clear it up in no time

Looks like limes disease. Got see your GP straight away just in case it is. You'd need antibiotics

I used to get ringworm and it looked like this. Never had it again since having my children
