Thanks for the query.

You might have developed an intertrigo.
It is a mixed bacterial and fungal infection developing mainly in folds due to excess moisture.

You can use clotrimazole powder twice daily.
This will help in controlling moisture as well as control the fungal infection.

If possible upload a photograph of the lesion.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you.
