Brief Answer:
Pityriasis rosea

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and viewed the image

I can see small, scaly patches on flanks and abdomen which seem most likely those of Pityriasis Rosea. I suggest you to use a moisturizer on the affected area, twice daily. In addition I suggest you to use a potent topical steroid e.g Clobetasol propionate 0.05% cream, twice daily for the scaly patches. You may also take an oral antihistamine e.g cetirizine 10mg tablet once a day for symptomatic relief from itching.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
Note: Hope the answers resolves your concerns, however for further guidance of skin related queries consult our Dermatologist.Click here to book a consultation
