Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.

Probably you have developed fungal infection.
Your description matches with that.

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

It is safe and effective.
You can try this.

If possible upload a photograph of the involved area.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Waiting for your response.
Thank you.
