Hi
Thank you for asking HCM.
I have gone through your query. Your problem can be due to fungal infection or irritation. Avoid soaps and irritants to wash the area and instead you can use saline or warm water. Using ointments containing anti fungal agents like miconazole and corticosteroid like hydrocortisone for local application will be helpful for this. This is available as over the counter in brands like daktarin. Using intimate wash daily is also good.
Hope this may help you. Let me know if anything not clear.
Thanks.
