Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

Thank you for your question.Itchy spots on the skin can be due to a number of causes and the most common is excessive sweating along with a fungal or a yeast infection of the skin.If the excessive sweating is something that has started recently, I would recommend that he should be tested further and the one test that I would like to have a look at is his thyroid hormones, if he has not had those done already, recently.Let me know if you have more questions.Please rate me by clicking on one of the rating options at your end.Kindest regards
