Intertrigo. Close-up of an intertrigo rash and fungal infection in the lower abdominal skin folds of a male diabetic patient. The skin is red and inflamed. Intertrigo is an inflammation caused by warm, sweaty folds of skin rubbing repeatedly together. The affected area may blister and become odorous. Intertrigo is most common in the obese or elderly, and usually occurs on the thighs, armpits, breasts, folds of the abdomen, or between the fingers. Treatment includes weight reduction and keeping affected areas as clean and dry as possible. Fungal infections are common in diabetics; treatment is with anti-fungal medication.
