Fungal infection

Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
It is looking like fungal infection.

I treat such cases with a topical antifungal cream like Clotrimazole to be applied twice daily for a month.

It is safe and effective.
You can try this.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Just relax.
It's not aids.
It's a common fungal infection and can be easily treated with the use of antifungals.
Fungal infection cannot be cured with diet.
You need to apply medication for that.
