Wondering, it sounds like all the sweating has weakened the skin’s defence mechanisms and that you now have a superficial fungal infection. The best would be to ask the pharmacist to give you something like Lamisil® and to apply it for at least a week to ten days. If it doesn’t clear up, the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
