Could dry itchy shins with depigmented spots be caused by a fungal infection linked to a yeast imbalance in the gut rather than simple psoriasis?

In brief: No

There is no direct connection between the gut and the shin.
There can be fungal infection of the skin. It is not the fungus that is found internally.
