Thank you. It looks like a yeast and I would try to treat it correspondently. This irritating condition is caused by candida, a yeast that occurs naturally on your skin. Trapped perspiration can sometimes upset the natural balance of the skin allowing candida to cause an irritating, itchy y red rash. You can treat it with clotrimazole cream twice daily. Please keep your skin dry and do not take soap too often (only once daily).

Get well soon!
