As you said that you are suffering from type 1 diabetes
. Diabetics are more prone to fungal and bacterial infections. You may have developed dermatophytosis
Usually the infections grow when your blood sugar is not under control. Keep track of that.
You can start plain antifungal cream (without steroid
) and oral antihistaminics. If improvement is not seen or if it aggravates
then consult a dermatologist
, because secondary bacterial infection may also take place with due course of time.
