I am fostering guniea pigs and I have this spot on my neck that I thought might be an allergic reaction, but I noticed it goes in a circle and looks like this () literally, but more round. It is a bit itchy and slightly raised. If it is ringworm, how do you get rid of it and what gets rid of it? If not, what could it be?

Here is a link to a photo of ringworm from Mayo Clinic.
The signs and symptoms of ringworm include:
More than one patch of ringworm may appear on your skin, and patches or red rings of rash may overlap. You can have tinea infection without having the common red ring of ringworm.

Ring worm can come from anywhere. I actually got it from my horse then gave it to my husband and cats. We used athletes foot cream to get rid of it. Athletes foot and ringworm are from the Tinea family of fungi. Our vet told us we can use it on the animals as well as long as the don't eat it. We used a very powerful anti-fungal from 1800petmeds first and it almost killed the kitties. But once we started using lotrimin AF it cleared up and no animals got sick.
