Skin condition at multiple sites

Hello forum

I have developed a number of red, waxy / shiny skin patches - one on each wrist (about 4" or 10cm in length and about 1" or 2.5cm in width.

One of each side of my abdomen and the whole of one shin.

The skin is smooth and waxy in appearance - and all the hair has fallen out at each location. The skin has become slightly sensitive and a little itchy

I wish to know what the condition is and whether it is treatable

All advice greatly received - thank you

Tim
