Thanks for writing here.

It seems to be a fungal infection.

It can occur due to moist envoirenment.

Sexual intercourse also can cause this condition.

Start applying antifungal cream like clotrimazole over affected area.

Do not try to pull skin forcefully otherwise it can cause damage.

Keep area dry and clean.

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
