Itchy whitish scale on the mons pubis and on inner thighs. STD or fungal infection?

Hi I have few papules with whitish scale in form of the ring on the mons pubis and inner thighs areas. I have this problem since a week ago and I just noticed that its getting bigger than before. Its very itchy, no bleeding, no pus , its just the ring whitish bumps who grows bigger by the day. I never had this before. I wanna know what is it cause it doesnt seems like folliculitis to me. And I really wanna know if it is STD or just fungal infection . Please help me how to treat this infection.

Hi dear u r correct. It is a fungal infection only. So dont worry much. Here are my suggestions.
Take tab fluconazole 150 mg single tab.
Apply oint clotrimazole twice daily for 1 month,
most important point is that u must apply this oint for 1 month even after cure else there ll be recurrance. Hope u get well soon. Thank u
