Perfect red circle
Posted on: 05/29/2009
I noticed the other day I had a perfect red circle on my pubic area and now its looks like it is dry. What could this be?
Though it's difficult to say for sure without seeing it, it could be some spreading redness around a bite (mosquito, mite or, less likely, tick). If it's itchy, might also be a fungal infection. If it persists more than 1 to 2 weeks, or if it bothers you with pain, burning, or itching, you might want to be seen and examined by your doctor.
