Bald patches under tail, by anus?

I was brushing my cat and just now noticed that he has a (kind of large, I think) bald spot under his tail, to the right of his anus. Further right and down, by what I guess could be a cat's butt cheek/thigh is another bald spot. I haven't noticed any others yet and I have NO idea how long these have been there for.

The only time he's EVER dragged his butt across the floor (that I've seen) is after he used the litter box, because he had poop stuck to his butt/fur. I'm pretty sure he doesn't have fleas and he's a 100% indoor cat. He's overweight (I've been trying to diet him, as the vet instructed) and about 7 and a half years old. My building is old and has these insects that I think are house centipedes, it's possible he could've eaten one.

I'm planning on calling the vet tomorrow, but I was wondering if anyone had any idea what this could be?
