Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

Another possibility is an allergic reaction as correctly mentioned by you.

Please get a KOH mount done.

This will help in diagnosis.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

Various antifungal powders like candid are available.

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
