Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at healthcare magic

It can be either intertrigo which is inflammation of the body folds or candidiasis which is a fungal infection.

I would recommend you to upload the photographs of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.
