Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. Yes you are correct, it appears to be yeast infection. The area of groin around labia is very moist and is prone to develop these infections. Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals. Various antifungal powders like candid ( clotrimazole) are available. These can help reduce the moisture as well as control the infection. Please dont use any steroid, it can worsen your condition Let me know if you have any other doubts. Wishing you good health, Thank you
