  • Take her to the doctor. It's ringworm - a fungal infection that is HIGHLY contagious. Get it treated NOW before you all catch it.

  • Can you post a picture of it?

    You really should bring her to the doctor.

  • Does she wear snap up jammies? Is there a metal fastener against her skin at that spot? If it isn't ringworm, it is a reaction to metal against her skin. Avoid that type of clothing.

  • Ring worm or eczema

  • Yeah it sounds exactly like ring worm. It could be from her playing in dirt or if you have an animal.

  • I would try some anti-fungal cream like you would use for athlete's foot - it's the same family of fungus. Use it until the inflammation and itching is gone. If you don't see improvement in a few days, take her to the doc
