Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

This is a fungal infection which can easily be treated with OTC ointments.

I would recommend using Clotrimazole 1% and Hydrocortisone 1% twice daily for 2 weeks and that should clear it.

Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
