Red ring on neck
I've had this red ring on my neck for a few weeks now, it doesn't hurt or itch.  I feel healthy otherwise.  The skin feels normal and isn't rough or painful.  It sort of looks like a hickey.

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

If the rash persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Eczema has to be ruled out then.

Hope it helps. Take care and do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Warm regards.
