You don't have HIV and intertrigo is mainly caused by poor hygiene. Not drying between the fold of skin or just not maintaining cleanliness, not HIV related.

im a clean person, i shower once sometimes twice a day, i think my intertrigo could be cause of chronic antibiotic usage, 10 prescriptions in like half a year. and i read hiv causes yeast which causes intertrigo.but it also said not until years after not months.
