I don't know what has been suggested thus far, as I only read slightly past the first page, but I will go ahead and offer up some ideas I have. First
I will say that this does not look like a ringworm at all. Much too uniform and patterned. The first thing I would do is look at the end of your
mom's hair dryer/blow dryer. If the patterns match, then there is your answer. If that is not the answer, check for other things that could have come
into contact in that specific area either for a prolonged period of time, or a shorter period of time accompanied by excessive heat or pressure.
This very well could be paranormal in nature, but it could also be mundane. The main reason that I think it could be paranormal is that this exact
same marking has popped up on men and women, although mostly women, around the world. I'm positive that it has happened much more than has been
documented, and the fact that it has been documented, although to a minor extent, in my opinion goes to show that it is at least a recurring
phenomenon. Coupled with the fact that no good explanation has been found by any of those who have experienced this phenomenon, I think a case could
be made for something supernatural. Many skeptical people will not even entertain that idea, but others may if and only if a sufficient effort is made
to find logical, although maybe not obvious, reasons for this to occur.
I think we can rule out a medical cause, although I am not well-versed in medical literature enough to say that with any high degree of confidence. It
just seems as if it were a rash it would not be so uniform. And what are the odds of people all over the world experiencing an identical rash, which
is in itself rare considering it is composed of geometrically positioned linear markings?
