Ringworm Skin Rash

Ringworm skin rash on arm and chest, with a close-up of rash

Ringworm of the skin usually causes a rash made up of circular patches with raised, red edges. The edges may be peeling or scaly or have bumps that look like blisters. The rash spreads from these edges, often leaving the center clear. This gives the rash a ring shape.
