Could it be non-itchy thrush?

never had thrush before, if it is what do i do to alleviate it, feels like skin is chaffed and smarting
thanks for replying

I would give cannestan cream a try. You can get that over the counter at any chemist. I know this sounds gross but try to keep the area really clean and dry. Vaseline might ease the smarting and chaffing sensation. Hope this helps.
