In brief: Bald spots

The most common cause would be a fungal infection.
Other causes include seborrheic dermatitis and several auto-immune disease such as alopecia arreata.

In brief: Bald spots

Your description sounds like bald spots due to rubbing/chronic irritation.
Try to avoid rubbing of the areas. If no improvement, see a dermatologist.
