Brief Answer:
Most probably fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello

thank you for the answers. i have gone through them. You symptoms are suggesting fungal infection. If i were your treating doctor then i would have advised following things:

- Systemic antifungal(ketoconazole) therapy for 2-3 weeks. It is a prescription medicine so you need to visit your local dr to get it.
- cetirizine one at night for 5-7 days.
- keep genital area clean
- do not let it wet after shower
- wear loose garments
- washing your clothing & bedding thoroughly.
- Avoid dove soap till you become healthy again

Hopefully you will see improvement in 4-5 days. If condition remains same or aggravates then you need to visit hospital for further workup.


Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
Wishing you good health !!
