    It sounds like tinea versicolor.  Check with your doctor for anti-fungal medication, and from what I know, it's a harmless skin condition.

    I would schedule and appointment with your dermatologist if you are concerned that this may be fungal. Do you also have PLC/Pleva? One thing that I've noticed with the condition is that it is typically accompanied by other skin concerns. This may be something completely harmless, but I would definitely have a dermatologist take a look at it in person and run any necessary tests to rule out whether or not it's fungal. Please keep us updated on this.
