Hello and thank you for submitting your question.

Your question is a very good one and I will work on providing you with some good information and recommendations regarding what is going on.

What you're describing sounds like a very mild form of a skin fungal Infection. Fungal infections of the skin typically appear as red or very light pink patches. They are often not associated with any significant degree of itching or pain. They tend to come and go from time to time and are sometimes associated with excessive amounts of heat or sweating.

There is an over-the-counter medication which you could try in order to help minimize the spread of any of these. This over-the-counter cream is called Clotrimazole. This is generally very readily available at any local pharmacy.

If this doesn't help, you would suggest you see Dermatologist for physical evaluation of the lesion.

I hope you found my response to be helpful informative and reassuring. If you have any additional concerns, I would be happy to address them.
