Brief Answer:
Anti-fungal creams may help

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for consulting us.
Most common cause of similar problem is a fungal infection in a diabetic or pre-diabetic woman. Treatment is usually easy by using anti-fungal cream.
Considering your history of asthma & allergy, I recommend you strongly that you should consult a doctor before trying anything on your own. This will save you from any unexpected complication.
There could be other possibilities like allergic conditions, skin problems etc.
Wish you good health.
