Looks like you have a yeast infection known as

Tinea versicolor...it's easily controlled by some of the selenium sulfide preparations...you can try the o-t-c product which is only 1%...and if it doesn't work, see your doctor for the prescription 2.5% lotion/shampoo...a heads up...it will recur in a year or so but respond to the same treatment
