Hi,

This may be fungal infection, eczema, pityriasis rosea.

each of these is a distinct condition and therefore may need examination and tests to rule out th cause.

Fungal infection is common in warm and humid areas and appears like an annular itchy lesion with central clearing.

Eczema may be caused by some allergen or irritant at the site and may lead to development of itchy, lichnous areas.

Pityriasis rosea may start with a Herald patch which may then lead on to more such lesions. They may not be very itchy in nature.

You may have to visit a dermatologist to get the examination, diagnosis and treatment. meanwhile, you may keep the area clean and use anti-histamines for the itching.

Hope this helped. Let me know if you may need more information.
