Red Itchy Rings
I'm 19 and I get these red rings on the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet that itch really bad a times.  But when I itch them, they sting even though I have no nails.  If I pull my skin tight, the red outline goes away and a white one becomes visible.  The circles aren't perfectly round for the most part, and I started getting these (or at least noticing them) after I started taking birth control.  The rings can be slightly raised sometimes, but other times they aren't. And they aren't always there.  They come and go, on different parts of my hands and feet. But they're always pretty annoying.

Hello,
These itchy annular lesions can be due to ringworm or nummular dermatitis. Nummular dermatitis is a type of eczema and allergic reaction is one of the commonest causes. Apply calamine lotion and take some antihistaminics like Benadryl. If the symptoms persist then topical steroids may be needed. For this please consult a dermatologist.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
