Thanks for the query,

There is a possibility that you might have developed fungal infection.

Your description matches with this.

However a confirmation is necessary.

Please get a KOH mount done,

This can confirm the fungal etiology.

A photograph would have helped me in giving a closer diagnosis.

Treatment can be with oral antifungals as well as with topical antifungals.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
