Exclamation What is this? Off to the vet.

Posting this quickly from work to see if anyone has a clue as to what this could be. This morning before I left home, I noticed that Odie has a BRIGHT red spot on her belly which showed up out nowhere. It's so red that at first I thought it was blood and tried to wipe it off. She's not bothered by it at all, and doesn't care when I touch it. Could this be ringworm? I have a couple of spots on my chest (which I've had before and clear up with a prescription cream) right now, but they're not red like hers is. Could she have potentially caught something from me? I made her a vet appointment for tomorrow afternoon to get checked out, poor girl.

Any ideas?

So sorry for Odie! I'm curious to see what the vet says, but if I had to say, I wouldn't think ringworm.

doesn't look like ring worm, that is usually a perfect circle.

I would say its probably a bite, or maybe impetigo?

Yes it looks like a bite that she's maybe nibbled and bruised the skin around.
