I would consider two diagnostic possibilities;
1) Pityriasis alba
2) Vitiligo or leucoderma.
The first one is a self limiting disease and do not need treatment. Vitiligo would require long term treatment with local application cream, oral medications and ultraviolet rays.
Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Pityriasis Alba is not contagious. It is not caused by hot showers.
Alba can be caused by vitamin deficiency.
I would also consider mild grade candidiasis as one of possibility.. You may apply over the counter Monistat cream.
It may take 2-3 weeks to resolve.
