Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

HI there

can you attach a picture?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
This is either a fungal infection or vitiligo (loss of pigment)

I recommend you see dermatology for skin scraping to test for fungus

clotrimazole 1% over the counter usually works

well it dissapear after hot shower

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
then it is probably fungal
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

also disapear then you touch it o massage that place could it be fungus ?

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.
yes, it could

when you rub it or take a shower it probably just alters the blood supply temporarily and makes it look different. I'm confident its a fungus but have your GP look at it to be sure
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

i saw gp already he said nothing to worry about ,another doctor said is might be blood circulation problem

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 3 years ago.

At worst a fungal infection
