Dark and light skin patches on chest and neck, looks like ringworm, no itchy

I have got patches of dark and light skin around the chest and neck area. They look like ringworms but they are not itchy. They started in the last month. I am a middle aged woman who has recently been married and I am not pregnant as I am taking the combined pill and I was on my period during the last week. What could be the cause and what should I do?
