I noticed round scar like appearances on my legs and the hands.. I thought it could be because i would have scratched there, during the winter,,,when it was dry skin.. but iam worried, why it appears in somewhat round shape..it is spreading in number slowly..is it a fungal disease... it happened 1 year back for the first time.. but still is not gone..
Does it look like that? If yes, then I would say ringworm.
Either way, I am not a doctor, so i suggest asking your pharmacist or Dr. I believe there is an over the counter anti-fungal cream that treats it, which the pharmacist should be able to show you.
If not, go to the Dr. and ask if you can. Until then try to keep the area clean and dry. And try not to scratch if it itches. (scratching usually helps spread it if it is a fungal infection).
Good luck! :) let us know how it goes and what you find out.
