I have these round dry patches on my thighs. The edges are raised but they do not itch at all. They have been spreading. They seem to go away when I tan but I haven t been in the sun much this summer. They aren t really discolored but you can tell they are there. I put lotion on them but they aren t going away. What could this be?
