Brief Answer:
Kindly upload images for review

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I have reviewed your query.

Perhaps it is a Nevus Sebaceous.

I'd request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected area to the 'Reports Section' of this web-page so that I am able to have a closer look and guide you accordingly

Hope to assist you further once I get to review the images.

Awaiting...

Brief Answer:
Upload more images

Detailed Answer:
Thank you.
The images are not very clear. They blur out when I try to zoom in, however, they seem like those of Nevus Sebaceous. Are the patches hairless?or do they have hair emerging through them? I request you to kindly upload clear images. Another possibility is that they could be warts/ verrucae.

take care
