Skin Care and Diseases

Red bumps on upper legs



I have a few red bumps on my upper legs. They do not itch. There is one bigger, one is round; it looks like a red ring. Kind of like a small ringworm. But it does not itch. What should I put on it?


It is very difficult to say as there are hundreds of causes of red bumps on the lower extremities. If good skin care and use of moisturizers is not helping, I would advise seeing a physician. Over the counter antifungals may be tried if that's your suspicion.
