Thanks for posting your query.
1) Kindly answer the following detail:
a) Do you have fever/ chills/ itching in these lesion?
b) Is it confined to the described territory or involving lower part of body also?
2) I have seen the photograph and suggestive of some viral/ fungal (Pityriasis versicolor as hypopigmented patches are visible) etiology.
3) You should consult with skin specialist and go for KOH mount examination (test done for fungal skin disease diagnosis).
Let me know your query if you have.
Best regards,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Viral infection has some blisters with itch also.
Fungal infection never causes blister formation
You should consult with dermatologist.
