Lyme's disease is from a tick bite and that type usually looks more like a target -- red in center -- then clear -- outer red / pink ring
The fungal type infection "ringworm" = tinea corporis is a circular type skin infection which spreads out ...often noticed when about some size the out part of the disk may show a bit of inflammation ...
"Ringworm" is a fungal skin infection and that would respond to a topical antifungal such as Lamisil -- twice a day for 10 days would clear it if that ....( it is available over the counter )
I hope that this is helpful for you
I await to see if you may post a picture to this page ...

She should see her pediatrician..
It looks classic appearance for Lyme's disease ..that is readily treatable with a course of erythromycin
Early treatment tales care of it and she would not need worry of the secondary complications of that disease
It does not appear to be ringworm no to that ...
The skin will clear in time regardless ..
Yes tomorrow is fine
It is not emergent but needs appropriate treatment to prevent secondary complications
She may start erythromycin tomorrow or this next week would be fine ...
Yes ...exactly ...
