    Anyone ever seen a Lesion like this??? Bug bite? Ringworm?

    So I'm usually pretty in my element with weird dog stuff.

    Just adopted a new dog a month ago.

    Saturday this thing just appeared on the inside of his hip.

    I'm really worried about ringworm since I have another dog who is very sensitive and we have a trip planned soon.

    The rest if his coat is in fairly good shape, he does get foliculitis... being a Tibetan Terrier mix needing regular grooming. Name:  20180714_053401.jpg

    It appeared with hair still on it, I clipped the hair to look for like bite holes, so no actual hair loss.

    The red ring is hard, like a rubberband under the skin.

    For the first 36 hours it had no texture of oily or dry and didn't bother him at all.

    At 48 hours it got redder and oozed a bit and the red part seemed tender a little.

    At 72 hours I took him to the vet, not my vet but I was visiting relatives.

    He just shone a black light at it and said not ringworm.

    However a very small amount of ringworm actually glows, most dont.

    He gave him a steroid shot and nothing else.

    Steroids helped for about 8 hours.

    Now it's still red, peeling, and bothering him.

    Bug bite?? If so, what.... we gave sun spiders, scorpions, widows...
    Occasionally fleas and ticks but I've searched both dogs.

    We do have occasional ants and gnats are bad right now from tons of rain.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Hoping my pics are attached but I'm not sure I did that right.
