Hi,

Thank you for your query and I appreciate the photographs that you have sent.

The lesion appears to be an inflammed fungal infection. I suggest you consult a dermatologist who may take a scrapping for investigation and put you on an anti-fungal ointment such as clotrimazole twice a day.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Please feel free to revert back in case you need any clarifications or would like to share more facts.

Wishing you an early recovery.

Regards,

RKK
