Dime-sized rash that keeps reppearing at the same spot

I have this dimed-sized rash that appears about once every two weeks for almost a year now. It's always the size of a dime and it's white with a red circle. This rash always appears at the same spot on my calf. Just today, it reappeared, but now there are two. What could it possibly be?

Hello,
Without examination,confirmation of a diagnosis is tough but it can be discoid eczema ,pityriasis rosea, or hives.

Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching.

No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months(upto six months).Mild steroids can also be used.

If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist.Other possibilities have to be ruled out then.

I hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
