Odd spots on my Chest, stomach, and back

I've had these odd spots one really big on my chest then smaller circle spots on my back and stomach. I'm 19 years old male I've had these spots for about 7 months now. I don't have health insurance so I just want to know a way to get rid of these spots if I have to go to a doctor I will.

Here's a picture of my chest and stomach http://tinypic.com/r/5aklcx/6

I think you have tinea. It is a fungal infection. If you go to a dermatologist they will give you a prescription ointment that will help. It's not dangerous to have this, but it takes awhile to go away. Be sure to shower every day and wear clean clothes. Being sweaty seems to make it worse.
