Hello,

It may be due to fungal infection. For that you may apply clotrimazole ointment locally. You may require fluconazole tablet after consultation. Avoid sweating. Maintain proper hygiene. In case of not getting relief you may consult with dermatologist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
