    Red splotch on my arm that is white around it.
    bailey08 posted:
    Friday last week I noticed a pimple looking bumping my arm that itched. I was worried it might be the start of ringworm so I put some antifungal cream on it and forgot all about it. Sunday I woke up and when I got out if the shower I noticed the red splotch where the bump had been. It didn't itch anymore. It had a red dot in the middle. I put some more of the antifungal cream on it bc i still thought it might be ringworm. Everyday it will look better when I wake up and then when I get in the shower it turns bright red again. Today I noticed it has a white ring around it now. Any ideas of what it is? I'm wondering if it is a spider bite possibly.
