Did you try any medicine/cream?

Thank you for the input.
There can be dermatitis.
A fungal infection is possible.
You can try lamisil cream with hydrocortisone.
Those will take care of those conditions.
Sometimes, oral medicine would be needed.
If you do not see improvement, I would advise to take an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
Wish her healthy life.
Regards.
