Do you have that rashes and unpleasant smell under your breasts, armpits, belly part and genital area? You might be having intertrigo

Intertrigo is a condition in which larger skin-fold areas of your body are greatly affected. It is mostly common to overweight individuals. 

Because skins in these areas are irritated by friction, it then leads to itching, redness and foul odor. In infants, it is commonly called as a diaper rash.
