Is this area itchy?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It can be itchy but not often. It gets dry and has an ashy layer but when wet it looks like the photos.

Sometimes

This is most likely a fungal infection, this is how they present. I would suggest that you keep the area clean and get an OTC anti fungal ointment like Lamisil cream and apply it twice a day for 7 days. I would also encourage that you try and keep this area sweat free, if possible.

Hope this helps.
