What are the light circular white spots on my inner thigh ?

I have a question about some light spots on my body that no one seems to what are. I have looked all over the internet to find out if some one has anything like I do and only find a few who have and they seem to think it s fungal but I m unsure. The spots are very light and follow the inner of thighs and they are perfect circles. Also they do not itch or cause any discomfort. After taking a bath the spots fade and I put some cream on them that seems to help. Please help me!

Hi,thanks for query.Either the spots are fungal as others are telling,or they are due to high amount of moisture in that area.Please keep the area dry,wear loose clothes,apply some cream or powder over the area,wear more of cotton clothes.You can apply some anti fungal cream on it to see the result,mostly they will disappear.Other wise please take help from your doctor.bye.

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

It seems to be a fungal infection even though it is not itchy.As you said it goes off with some creams and relapses again ,means that you are using probably a steroid creams which vanishes it temporarily .
I would advice you to use a plain anti fungal cream (no steroid) for couple of weeks and see the response .If it doesn't go ,then you should consult a dermatologist for expert opinion.
