    So I shaved my beard today and I noticed something. On my chin there are a few small (the biggest probably being a little over a cm in diameter) circular red blotches. They are slightly raised, but they don't hurt or itch at all. Before I shaved my beard I didn't even know I had them. I have had a beard for so long I really have no idea how long they have been there. The blotches are uniformly red and possibly slightly darker on the outside (though I might be imagining them being slightly darker on the outside).

    And oh yeah, I haven't grappled in years, I just figured you guys would probably know about this kind of thing. So I have no idea how or where I would have gotten it.

    So do you guys think it is ringworm if it doesn't itch or hurt at all?

    EDIT:

    Pics (this is my chin by the way...and below it you can see my second and third chin :icon_chee)

    Isn't ringworm normly a darker skin tone colour, like tan or birthmark coloured, rather than red? It's not just shaving rash because you haven't shaved in a while is it?

    It could just be razor burn. IF you haven't shave for a while it is quiet easy to get on your chin

    I don't think its a shaving rash. It is slightly raised and I don't think it would be a little raised immediately. I think I am just going to keep an eye on it and see what happens in the next couple days. I really have no idea how I could have gotten ringworm. I have a two year old son and I don't want him to get it.

    My wife just looked at it and she thinks it might just be razor burn. I do know that there are hairs growing through it. A few of the blemishes look like I just scraped a layer of skin off but the biggest one is a bit raised. So I don't know.

    Yeah that is what my wife said. I literally haven't shaved in years. It doesn't hurt or itch or anything though.

    I had razor burn that looked like that a few days ago. It was raised and splotchy. Try moisturizing and see if it doesn't go away in a couple days.

    That third picture looks like ringworm to me. It's tough to say, but I would treat it anyway.

    Schnapp, now I'm getting scared. So lamisil is all I need?

    I have absolutely no idea how I would have gotten ringworm. I don't grapple and to be honest I don't get out of my house much. If I got it through my son or neighbor I would imagine they would have it too. So I really don't know.

    alright I am going to go to walmart and get some lamisil. Hopefully it isn't ringworm...and if it is, hopefully lamisil works. Thanks for the help guys.

    It sure does look a lot like this:

    Yeah, I am going to get some lamisil. Any recommendations on how to do it? Just put some on and rub it in? Should I bandage it up while I sleep?
