Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
The description provided is vague and so cant think of a specific diagonsis.
These oval spots could be tinea( fungal infection), pityriasis rosea, granuloma annulare etc.

I would appreciate if you could upload an image of concerned lesions. This can be done by clicking on upload report/ image icon on right side of query page. Please upload only clear and good resolution images.

This would help me in thinking of a probable diagnosis and then we may carry our dicussion further regarding management of your skin concern.

Hope this helped.
