Seems to be candidiasis
Thanks for being at healthcare magic
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be candidiasis which is a fungal infection.
It can be transmitted sexually. Ask your partner whether she is having history of vaginal discharge or itching in the pubic area?
Are you diabetic or have you taken antibiotics for a long time?
In such cases I recommend my patients to apply sertaconazole cream on the affected areas twice daily for 2 weeks.
Besides this keep the area dry, wear cotton underwear and stay in cool airy environment.
Not looks like herpes and hpv infection
It doesn't look like herpes or human papilloma virus infection.
I think Lotrimin is partially effective in your case, might be due to reinfection from your partner.
Candidiasis is a yeast infection you might have contracted from her.
Avoid unprotected intercourse till the time she gets cured of the infection.
