Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone tgrough your query and I have noted your concern.
You could possibly be having fungal infection i.e tinea corporis. I would suggest a topical antifungal e.g clotrimazole 1% cream,2x daily. It is available over the counter. I would be able to guide you better if you could upload an image in "Reports Section".
