Kindly a photo is needed to help through the diagnosis.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand your concern.
A photo would be very helpful through the diagnosis.
If it is a fungal infection you can apply an over-the-counter antifungal cream, such as clotrimazole, then topical hydrocortisone 1% ointment an hour later.
You can do this two to three times per day.
I also recommend using oral medication such as Fluconazole 150 mg one tablet a day for three days.
This is also a prescription medication, so you should consult your doctor before using it.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
