Did you consult doctor or have any test?

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 1 year ago.

I was waiting for your reply.
As it does not appear to be typical ringworm, there can be other probables.
There can be dermatitis, allergy.
It can occur from contact with an allergen in swimming pool.
I would advise to consult a dermatologist.
Skin scraping can be taken for test.
Hydrocortisone cream can help in those conditions.

You can try that.
