    Has anyone mentioned Pityriasis Versicolor? That's what this looks like. Treatment at first is washing the affected area with a shampoo that contains Ketoconanzole. Ask your chemist/pharmacist if they have one...there are several available. As you seem to have it in lots of patches it may take some time to clear and lots of bottles of shampoo. Work the shampoo into damp skin, leave for a minute and then wash off thoroughly. Do this every day for a week, then alternate days. If you are in UK talk to your doctor about Pityriasis.

      I am very happy about that someone is listening truly to what i am saying. Thank you so much. I am in Uk channel island. after so much of googling about my condition i found so much symptoms similiar to tinea veriscolor. i have mentioned about it to one dermatologist two year ago. But he doesn't took me serious.he said i dont have any skin scaling. he prescribed some steroids cream. but i stopped using that after a month. i didnt see it helping. thanks.

    PS The condition is not catching. It is caused by a fungal infection. Not dangerous .
