Hello,

It could be a superficial fungal infection like taenia. As a first line management you can apply topical anti-fungal medicine like Clotrimazole after cleaning with soap and lotion. If symptoms persist better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Wishing you all the best.
