I was wondering if you can tell me what r these
Thank you

the pictures are consistent with tinea corporis..... the pictures aren't great, but I think this is a skin fungal infection..... if there aren't a lot, an antifungal cream for 10 days.   If there are too many to cream up, sometimes I use nizoral pills, once a week, during a time when you sweat a lot..... for 6 weeks.

Hope this helps
