Brief Answer:
Fungal infection or irritation can be the cause.

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM.

I have gone through your query. Fungal infection or irritation from chemicals like soaps you use can be the reason. Avoid soaps and irritants to wash the area and instead use saline or warm water.

You can apply over the counter ointments or creams containing antifungal like miconazole and corticosteroid like hydrocortisone. This is available in brands like daktarin as over the counter.

Also check your blood sugar levels as this is a manifestation in diabetics when sugar level become high.

Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
