In brief: Can't diagnose with

this info. These lesions need to be visualized & a history needs to be obtained in order to make an accurate diagnosis.
Sometimes lab testing or biopsy is necessary.

In brief: Your description

applies to a number of skin problems but I would "vote for" FUNGAL cause.
Sometimes SPECIFIC TREATMENT and sometimes ORAL ANTI-FUNGALS are indicated! In other words get it checked out as soon as practicable by your PCP who may want to refer you to a Board Certified Dermatologist!!! Hope this helps Dr Z
