Question: red ring on ankle
|MuzicLov3r - Fri Apr 25, 2008 3:46 pm|
I have a small light red ring, slightly raised around3/4th of an inch in diameter on my ankle.
I haven't been camping recently, but I do have pet cats and a dog. This is the first time I've seen it.
I don't know what it is or what it could be.

I know have one on both ankles. The second isn't a ring however but A full circle with the same traits.

It is possible you could have a fungal infection called ringworm (nothing to do with worms). If so it is easily treated with antifungal creams. Beyond that you would need to see a doctor if it is still bothering you.
