Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi,

It seems to be pityriasis versicolor which is a superficial fungal infection of the skin. I would recommend you to apply Clotrimazole cream on the affected area for 2 weeks.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Asmeet Kaur Sawhney, Dermatologist
