Your symptoms are suggestive of Dermatitis. There are many causes of the same.
Fungal Infection., Allergy, Contact Dermatitis.

You should consult a dermatologist and take an opinion for the same.
Since its for 6 weeks, it unlikley that it will go by itself.

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards
