Brief Answer:
Fungal infection; Use a topical antifungal cream

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us.

I am dr.kakkar(dermatologist). I have gone through your query and i have reviewed the image.

You seem to have a fungal infection.

I suggest a topical antifungal cream e.g clotrimazole 1% + beclomethasone dipropionate 0.05% cream (Clotrin- B cream), twice daily for 2 weeks.
In addition you may also take a tablet of levocetrizine 5mg (tab teczine) once daily in evening for symptomatic relief from itching

Brief Answer:
Topical antifungal cream

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

This is a prescription cream and tablet and I suggest you to use the medications under supervision of a doctor in your vicinity.
Use the cream twice daily, after bath, in morning and before going to bed, at night for 2-4 weeks. Tablet is to be taken once daily in evening.
After this resolves, use an antifungal dusting powder (Clotrimazole 1% dusting powder) during summers to prevent relapse.
