white rings on skin on upper body

I recently went through chemo therapy last year for breast cancer, and just recently about 3 months ago, I noticed a white ring larger then a silver dollar it looks like someone took a milk cap and stuck it on my skin and left a white ring first I noticed one and a few weeks later I have 5 total rings, one on upper back and one upper front shoulder, two on side of ribs and one lower back all on the left side.  I did start taking a new hair skin and nail vitamin could this cause the discoloring of my skin.

Hello,
These rings can be due to pityriasis versicolor, nummular dermatitis or pityriasis rosea. Nummular dermatitis is a sort of eczema and needs to be evaluated because it is itchy. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
