Brief Answer:
It can be a fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Most probably it is a fungal infection.
Combiflam is not that much effective for this condition.
You can apply topical antifungal-steroid combination like clotrimazole-betamethasone after cleaning with soap and water. You can also take antihistamines like cetrezine for itching.
If symptoms persists better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.
Wishing all the best.
Thanks
