Itchy scaly brown spots on torso. History of psoriasis. Due to fungal infection?

A couple of months ago two itchy scaly spots appeared on the side of my torso. Since then they have progressed onto to brown marks which are slightly pimply they are both extremely itchy. Earlier on in my life I did have skin problems with pyrosis not sure if the spots I have relate to a fungal skin infection as I had gone swimming a couple of months ago and I suspect my towel had been used. Thank you

Hi there,
If you have a history of Psoriasis then you need to see a dermatologist so that he can examine you live,as you know Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory process with relapsing and remitting episodes. So the incident at the swimming pool could be just a coincidence.
so i am sorry but i can not comment any further due to very brief history and already estaiblished case of psoriasis.
i hope you understand that.
