Sounds like tenia corporis, a kind of fungal infection. But for a confirm diagnosis & treatment you need to see a dermatologist or visit a homeopath.

Dermatologist Dr. Gaurang Krishna's  Response
which country are you from> if you are from the subcontinent or africa or gulf, and if the sensations over the patch is altered, then i suspect leprosy. visit a dermatologist immediately for an accurate diagnosis. tinea corporis is unlikely if the lesion is not itchy or it has not changed for the last three months.
