Did you get pictures?

Thanks for sharing

Have you used anything to treat it so far?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Some cream an inflammation & an ointment both prescribed by a doctor

Thanks for the details

It seems like a fungal infection to me

You should use an anti-fungal like Itraconazole

You can try Clotrimazole cream as well till you see the doctor for a prescription

This will help in clearing the rash as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question

One last thing, what could have caused it & how come it seem to spread?
Thank you for the information

It can be caused by excess sweating,stress,low immune system etc

But it can occur without any obvious reason as well

It can spread if left untreated

Please do let me know if you have any other question

If done please leave a 5-stars feedback rating
