Hi Lee, thank you for the question.
There are a number of possibilities for these skin lesions/dry patches you have noticed. The commonest skin disorders we need to consider are: excessive dry skin (xerosis), eczema, dermatitis, Tinea versicolor (fungal infection), etc.
As such my advice is to consult a dermatologist who can examine the skin and give you the appropriate diagnosis and treatment regime.
