Dear Friend,
Yes i think you have skin infection caused by bacteria, hence you should maintain proper hygeine in the areas were you sweat a lot.
I whould suggest you to consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in your area and take internal medicine,avoid any external application as it can cause suppression and delay in complete recovary. Homeopathic medicine like Hepar sulph, sulphur, silica will help in this condition and will prevent reoccurence.
Thank you
