Brief Answer:
Seems to be due to a fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query but would need further inputs. I would request you to upload an image of the affected area. However, based on the provided details it seems that you have a fungal infection. If that is the case, application of candid (clotrimazole) lotion topically twice or thrice a day for a week or so should provide relief.

Let me know if I could help further.
