Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through the image and it seems to be a fungal infection. If I had a patient like you, I would have prescribed Candid B (clotrimazole + Betamethasone) lotion to be applied topically for a few times a day for 5-7 days. This is to be replaced by Candid (clotrimazole) powder if required, after 7 days. I would also have suggested levocetirizine tablet (antiallergic) 5 mg once daily for the initial 5 days. I think that the same solution would be able to give you relief.

Wish you a fast recovery.

Regards
