White circular patches spreading on triceps and thighs. Could it be due to dry skin?

white circular patches on skin.... on my triceps and on my thighs.... last year it was only on my left arm and left thigh, but now it spreads....i had it for a while, it comes and goes, and it is not always visible, but applying powder on the skin reveals it position, it doesn t seem serious but it definately not normal... i feel its dry skin or something because i rarely apply lotion.

Hi, Godsonxx,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you might be having Tinea versicular ,a fungal infection.
Apply some anti fungal lotion like Micoderm,Multifungin lotion.
Take tablet Flucanozole 150 mg once in a week for 4 weeks orally.
Take antihistamine like Cetrizine if itching is there.
Ok and bye.
