Hello,

It can be due to fungal infection or eczema. Fungal infections mostly present as moist, red itchy rash but when it becomes chronic then it presents as dry , flaking skin rash. However the other possibility is of eczema skin or psoriasis skin. I suggest you to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. Steroids prescribed in eczema can worsen the symptoms if it is a fungal infection.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
