reoccuring red circles

My 2 year old has reoccuring red circles.  We went to a pediatric dermatologist and she said it could be hives.  She said its not ringworm or lyme disease, but I am concerned.  I have attached a picture.  They come and go.  We can't relate them to any one thing, heat, pets, etc.

Interesting. These probably represent annular urticarial rashes.(a form of hives.)
My good wishes.

thanks.  I should add that the red circles are not raised or itchy.  The skin over the red area is smooth.
