Hello,
This discoloration on the trunk can be due to tinea versiocolor. The other possibility is of hyperpigmentation skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin.

I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist as treatment is different for both and a diagnosis needs to be confirmed first. I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep us posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
