Round, red spot on leg?

I have this circular spot on my thigh... Maybe the size of a thumbnail. I thought it was a bug bite since apparently Northen Virginia Bugs LOVE me, but it's not really itchy... and really round.

Does anyone know what this might be? Should I go to the doctor, or not be worried?

Same here. Take a picture so we can diagnose your properly.

Signed,
I'm not a doctor, I just play one on TV.

I was looking for a white spot in the middle, but i don't see one. It's just round and reddish/pink... Been there for a few days.

It could be a spider bite. If it doesn't get better, see a doctor. When I get bit, I swell and get infected and need antibiotics.

Hmm, yeah, that's what I'm thinking it may have been.

Thanks! I'll probably see what happens in a day or two - just didn't want to panic and go to the doctor for a geometrically curious bug bite Chat Icon

deb-- I would definately keep your dog out of the woods at all cost. Walk her in only low grass if you can. This area (we're in MD) is the WORST for ticks and all kinds of disease carrying bugs.

Maybe ringworm? Definitely go to the Dr, though.
