Hello,
It can be nummular dermatitis or ringworm. Take some antihistaminic like Benadryl or Claritin and apply some calamine lotion on the rashes. If the symptoms persist then topical or oral steroids may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. Also then get KOH examination of the skin scrapings done to rule out any fungal infection or ringworm.

I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
