Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Probably you have developed fungal infection.
Your description is suggestive of that.
You can try an antifungal medication like ointment clotrimazole twice daily for a month.
This should help you.
Get your blood sugar levels checked as such infections are common in diabetics.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thanks.
