Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the photographs.
It is looking like a fungal infection.
I treat such cases with topical antifungal cream like clotrimazole.
You can use it twice daily for 15 days.
It is safe and effective and gives good response.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
