Hi,

It may be intertrigo. Consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. I would recommend you to apply anti-fungal cream like Clotrimazole and antibacterial cream like Sisomycine cream. Take a course of anti-fungal like Ketoconazole and antihistaminics like Levocetirizine for few weeks. Take Sitz bath in dettol mixed water. Keep the affected area dry. Avoid soap bath.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilyas Patel, Dermatologist
