Differential
Psoriasis vulgaris(plaque type psoriasis)- feature thats against the diagnosis is location...typically these occur on extensor surfaces..

Tinea corporis(point for this is the ??central clearing/point against this-location not typical)

If i have to choose one- will go with plaque type psoriasis..
