Brief Answer:
Can be due to fungal infection Tinea corporis.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to fungal infection Tinea corporis. If you send a picture of it then it will be more helpful in identifying.
How long you had it. ? When it started. ? Any other associated problems. ?

For such problem I would recommend terbinafine or ketoconazole lotion for local application and fluconazole tablet for oral intake.

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