Hi,

If you are diabetic check for blood sugar. If not related to blood sugar it can be fungal infection - share picture for confirmation. Local application of anti-fungal cream can help you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. S. R. Raveendran, Sexologist
