Hi Danae! Welcome to our forum. Your condition seems like pityriasis versicolor to me, caused by fungus. It is common during summer season when excessive sweating occurs and when tight fitting clothing do not allow the the sweat to dry. Thus this damp environment becomes favorable condition for fungus to breed.
Using topical and oral antifungal medication may be helpful along with wearing of loose fitting clothings. Hope you keep us updated about your condition.
