I have read your question,
yes you have fungal infection on the areas you have mentioned above.
Generally people suffering with diabetes show such kind of infection commonly , in any case if you arent you can rule this out,

Maintaining hygiene in the pubic region is a necessity, since the problems sometimes increase to different levels , in your case you need not worry since it seems like in initial stages ,

I recommend you to apply anti-fungal ointment on the effected parts and the results may appear within 3-4 days , For itching use anti-histamine tabs , and anti-inflammatory tabs to reduce the intensity of the infection.

If your problem persists I suggest you to consult a nearby Dermatologist for further guidance.
Wishing you a good health,

Hi zany.aqua ! Take fluconazole tab and cetrizine for itch. Then apply fungal cream on the area don't rub. Now! Don't wear under wear for some time and keep that place dry. Wash your underwear and pants with hot water with dettol drops in it. It sure help you. Be healthy. Bye.
