Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.This is likely a fungal infection given severe itchiness and redness. Dampness and sweating are ideal for fungal growth promotion.You can try following over the counter medications:1. Clotrimazole cream twice daily 2. Hydrocortisone cream twice daily. You can apply them together leave for 2 hours before any washing. Avoid too much soap application which can delay healing process.
