What is Intertrigo?

Intertrigo is a skin condition resulting from bacterial, fungal, or viral infections, leading to a rash typically occurring in areas such as the neck folds, groin, finger and toe creases, underarm regions, and behind the ears.


Several factors can contribute to the development of intertrigo, including regions where skin folds create elevated temperatures, sweating unable to dissipate due to clogged pores, and friction caused by movement.


Managing intertrigo can be quite uncomfortable and painful in daily life.
