You may be allergic to any food or drugs - check that out. It can be due to increased blood sugar - check blood sugar.

It can be due to fungal infection - doing a fungal swab culture can help you or local application of antifungal cream with steroid can help you. Long term application of fungal infection can get healed.

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

Take care
