o.k. so Sunday I woke up with a wierd red ring on the top of my foot. It doesn't itch, It isn't sore...any ideas? It hasn't changed at all. I hope the pic isn't too fuzzy. Can you see the ring??

The first thing that came to my mind was ringworm....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatophytosis

But other then that I have no idea.

Did you bang your foot with something that would have a similar shape like a broom handle?

I can see the ring.
Can you bathe the foot in a warm bath with sea salts?
Have you been camping recently?
Poor paw needs some soaking.

No camping, no injury that I can think of. It doesn't hurt or itch. Someone else mentioned ringworm too but I'm not sure.

Ringworm is not really a worm though right? Its just a fungus....I think....

Just be thankful its not pin worms.

I'd soak the foot if she were mine.
Then I'd look at it in the am and decide from there.
I'm a worrier and she'd be at the DR's .(vets)

We went to Hopewell rocks (after I noticed the ring though) where we walked the ocean floor during low tide.

I've been there. LOVED IT! It's so cool.

Not sure what's on your foot Mousey. I hope it clears up soon.

I thought ringworm was more like a circle and less like an actual ring.. but I could be wrong.. almost too afraid to google images...

Ok barf... DO NOT GOOGLE IMAGES OF RINGWORM!!!! I really feel ill now
