Ringworm initially appears as a flat scaly area on the skin, which may be red and itchy. This area develops a slightly raised border that expands outward to form a circular ring.
The contours of the ring may be irregular and the interior of the ring may be clear, scaly, or marked with red bumps. In some cases, several rings develop at the same time and may overlap.
