Hello,The condition you mention needs to be looked at as more in favour of a diagnosis of psoriasis.Though fungal infections involve these areas too, the combination of findings weigh towards psoriasis.A skin test for fungal elements,and a woods lamp to visualise the glow of fungus, and biopsy would help in distinguishing.Treatment would depend on the investigations.Do keep in touch.
