Having circular dry patch on my upper thigh.

I have a circular dry patch on my upper thigh that does not burns but sometimes itchy. It is white-like dry skin and has few really tiny dots or bumps. It sometimes also stinks so nowadays I have started cleaning it with gentle soap and water. What could it be?

Hi... It could be a fungal infection, or it can also be a vitiligo patch... if discharge is there, bacterial infection is a chance, skin is a very peculiar condition and direct examination with a dermatologist is better.

Agree with Kanye. Try putting some anti fungal powders and see how it responds.

I have a dry circular rash on my outer left thigh. It s 1.5 inches in diameter. Resembles a bullseye or ringworm. Does not itch. It had been there for 3-4 months. Three weeks ago patches of dry skin started appearing on the left outer thigh and now on the rt outer thigh. Now have about 10 patches each thigh. Sometimes get sharp stabbing or pin stick pain all over my legs or pain in my lower legs that feel like bad shin splints. Also notice a reddish purple rash covered by a silky smooth silvery white thin layer of skin on my left shoulder blade. Two weeks later another one appeared on my right shoulder. None of these rashes itch. Prior to these rashes I have developed a sensitivity to some bath products which caused yeast infections. I now bath in apple cider vinegar and honey. What is the cause of all the skin infections. Have noticed two spots on my face now. Hiv test taken 3 weeks ago ands 6 months ago are negative.

About 3-4 weeks ago I noticed a pinkish spot on my inner thigh, a few inches above my knee . It has turned into a blotchy mark a bit bigger than a quarter. It is not circular. It is mostly red, has some pink, and has a white patch near the center that feels like dry skin . It does not itch or burn or feel irritated. It is not bumpy or raised... I just noticed other spots on my other leg and on my stomach that look like this one might have when it started. I have never had skin problems excpet for generally dry/itchy skin in the winter.
