Brief Answer:
Its probably fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.

From your description it seems to be fungal infection. Fungal infection can come and go. It is harmless and can be ignored for most part.

Applying anti-fungal cream like miconazole or clotrimazole over affected area should take care of the problem. Drinking hygienic food and cleaner drinking water will help control the itch.

Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
