It does sound as though you have a fungal infection. Get some cream called Lotrimin. Which you can get at your local pharmacy. Wash the area with a mild soap, pat dry well. Once dry apply cream. You will see a great improvement in just a few days. Once it's cleared up, do continue using the cream for an additional 5 days to ensure the infection is gone.
