Having dark skin between breast. Not cured by any lotions. Skin comes off after itching. What is this?

I have a patch of skin between my breasts that is of a darker pigment and is very dry compared to the rest...I have tried many different lotions and nothing seems to work, but what s weird is that when I rub/ itch it, the skin comes right off as if it were just dirt...I know this is not the case because it is still there even after I take a 2-3 hour shower when I get home from work...any clue what this might be?

Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

The area under breast 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 are availabe.

These can help reduce the moisture as well as control the infection.

Please dont use any steroid, it can worsen your condition

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you good health,
Thank you
