Brief Answer: Appears to be likely Tinea Versicolor Detailed Answer: Namasthe Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Dear XXXXXXX I have gone through the pictures sent by you. From the pictures it appears to be Tinea Versicolor that is Fungal infection. Also if the lesion is associated with itching or irritation its more likely to be Tinea Versicolor. Taking skin scrapping and KOH mount will confirm the diagnosis. After confirmation treatment involves application of topical antifungal like Clotrimazole. I suggest you to see a Dermatologist who will be able to help you further. I hope i have answered your query. In case you have any other query, i request you to get back to me. Wishing you a healthy life. Take Care Regards Dr Deepak Kishore Consultant Surgeon

Brief Answer: Possibly may be contact dermatitis Detailed Answer: Namaste Welcome to Healthcare-Magic Greetings of the day Other possibility which one should think of is food allergy. It could also be contact dermatitis to particular type of fabric in clothing. I advise you to use cotton garments and wash them thoroughly in warm water after washing in detergent to remove the detergent residue. Wishing you a healthy life Take care Regards
