Post Red circle-Like bug bite

It starts out as a bright red circle. Looks like a bug bite. Doesn't itch. Then this red mark scales over to a white crust. If I dont scratch it, it will stay like that for weeks. No one can agree on what it is. Any ideas. Could it be stressed related?

It almost sounds like a roundworm. I'd see a doctor pronto.

I think Mascara Mess means a ringworm. It is a fungal type skin problem. Your doc can give you some cream to help. It is no big deal.

Sounds like ringworm to me too. A good anti-fungal cream will clear it right up if you put it on several times a day for a few days.
