Hi there.
If possible, do upload a clear digital photograph of said patches.
In the interim, please use a topical antifungal cream eg 2% ketoconazole (nizoral) applied locally twice/day for 10 days or so. If purely fungal, they will disappear. if not, one needs to get evaluated by a dermatologist nearest you & it may be early onset vitiligo or some such lesion & a skin biopsy may be required. Cheers & Good Luck!
