Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I understand your concern. I have seen the attached photograph also. As per de tails, it seems that you are suffering from a condition called pityriasis versicolor of hyperpigmented variety. It is caused by Malasezzia furfur which is a fungus normally found on our skin. It gets easily precipitated in hot humid weather. In such cases, I prefer to advise topical clotrimazole and oral antifungals like fluconazole . Visit your doctor so that he can do physical examination and give you prescription. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Stay healthy
