Welcome to HCM.
I have gone through your query.
Based on the description and sites of lesion, it is highly likely to be a fungal infection
Tenia corporis( Ring worm).
It is a common fungal infection, usually seen on areas of body where there is moisture like underarms, groin region, finger spaces. But it can present virtually anywhere on the body. As you have been experiencing less itching and more pain it could be due to a wild strain ( as ou have mentioned that you have done hiking and secluded in forest areas).
Do not worry. Using topical preparations that contains anti fungal( clotrimazole
, micanazole or ketoconazole), a steroid ( betamethasone
ot triamcinilone or clobetasone) and an antibiotic ( neomycin or gentamycin) should help you.
If you have severe pain using NSAIDS like Aceclofenac or diclofenac along with serratio peptidase will help you.
But please see a Dermatologist
to rule out other possibilities for the lesions ( as i did not see the lesion i can not be accurate with my diagnosis but probabality of you having ring worm infection
is high) and get treated accordingly.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
