Hot and cold sweat, red skin between legs, peeling skin. Earlier had tonsillitis

I have recently been ill with Tonsillitis and I still have it but its clearing up now but the other day I was having hot and cold sweats with it and the last hot sweat I had was quite bad! After I had it a few hours later I noticed my skin was very red in between my legs, around my vagina and on my vagina lips and in between my bum cheeks! I had a bath last night and after drying I looked at myself down there in the mirror because it was sore and noticed the skin where it is red was peeling and I was wondering if its due to the hot sweat and could the heat from it in some way have burnt me in anyway?

Thanks for the query.

You might have developed a fungal infection.

Redness and peeling of skin are characteristic of this.

Please apply antifungal powder like clotrimazole.

It will control the fungus as well as also keep the area dry.

Take an anti histamine tablet also.

It will decrease the redness.

Please meet a dermatologist and discuss regarding this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
