Thanks for writing to health care magic.
I think you have a skin allergy. This is precipitated by a hot water bath. These patches disappear on their own after around half hour or so after bath. If persisting your doctor may prescribe antihistaminics. Calamine lotions help to relieve the itch and problem associated.

I request you to answer these questions.
Are these patches appearing after a hot water bath?
Are these patches itchy?
Are these patches disappearing after some time automatically?
Do you have any other problem associated?

Please reply in detail so that I can help you better.
Take care.
