Difference Between Irritated Skin And Moldy Skin?
Good evening … My name is munasibah, I am 19 years old. Here I want to ask, about the difference in moldy skin and skin that is irritated and the experience that I have at this time .. skin folds between thighs and buttocks * sorry * I grew small nodules like people affected by sweat buntet. I do not dare to give any medicine and any ointment … because these spots do not cause itching or pain. But if I scratch or touch it feels itchy. Here I want to ask the pimple that I experience is irritation or fungus? Please explain and suggest healing … 😊Thank you for your attention.
