I have a type of skin disease. It is present on the upper front thigh and it is accurately on the sides of vagina and on the below part of vagina. The skin becomes irritated. It forms a layer of skin on it. I always used to remove the layer during morning bath. What is the disease and how can I get cured? Plz give me some remedies.

Hello, it appears that you may be suffering from what is known as Vulvovaginal candidiasis..You need to visit a dermatologist for the evaluation, and investigations like KOH smear, gram stain etc. before a definitive treatment.
Till then, apply clotrimazole 1% powder externally and take an antihistamine like tab Cetrizine 10 mg at bedtime
Get well soon.
Take care
