Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
It is looking like fungal infection.
I treat such cases with a topical antifungal cream like clotrimazole to be applied twice daily for a month.
It is safe and effective.
Try this cream and let me know the results.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
