Brief Answer:
Fungal infection. Oral and topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
thank you
You seem to have a fungal skin infection.
I suggest you to use a topical antifungal cream e.g clotrimazole 1% cream, twice daily. Clotrimazole is available OTC. In addition. I also suggest an oral antifungal e.g either fluconazole or itraconazole. Both these are prescription medications and I suggest you to kindly talk to your local practitioner regarding the same..
