Brief Answer:
Most likely fungal infection- Tinea corporis.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query and picture. It looks like fungal infection- Tinea corporis. Avoid soaps and irritants to wash the area. You can use saline or warm water instead of this. Using ointments containing anti fungal like miconazole and corticosteroid like miconazole for local application will be helpful. Fluconazole tablet should be taken weekly once to stop recurrence also.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
