Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
You might have developed a fungal infection called as tinea facie.
However it will be better to comment further after seeing the lesion.
Can you please upload a photograph of the lesion.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and a good line of treatment.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you
