Brief Answer: It is a fungal infection. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing your query. After reading your post, it seems that your symptoms are due to fungal infection. You should apply locally skin cream containing steroid like betamethasone and antifungal medication like miconazole. Oral antihistamine like Fexofenadine 120 mg once a day will help in relieving itching. Good local hygiene will prevent recurrence. I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further query, I will be happy to help. Regards. Thanks.
