Chickenpox: That's just a wild guess. I'm hopeful that you would have already received your chickenpox vaccination which would make this very unlikely. However, it's best for you to go see your family doctor for an evaluation & diagnose along w/appropriate treatment. It would help if you knew whether you were exposed to someone else w/similar symptoms. Or had your vaccination records available. ...Read more

Eczema?: By location and symptoms, it sounds like eczema. When it goes away, it sometimes leaves lighter patches. Treated by cortisone creams and prevented by moisturizing the skin better, eczema is very common. Dry climate (winter) can worsen. Moisturize well--creams, not lotions. The color will return if it is eczema. ...Read more

Another concern is scabies caused by a tiny spider mite that likes to burrow under the skin especially in damp moist areas- between finger and toe webs, in the groin, around belt line.
