Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to us.
From the description, your skin lesions could be tinea corporis or eczema or psoriasis. Lesions might be healing with dark spots.
The diagnosis can only be made, once I see the lesions. So for the same please upload images of your dry lesions as well as your spots. You may upload the pic by clicking on upload report/ image icon which is on right side of query page.
So upload the pics and we will take this discussion further.
Hoping to hear from you soon
