Intertrigo is the word used to describe a yeast and bacterial infection involving body folds.

Affected skin is reddened and uncomfortable. Intertrigo is particularly common in those who are overweight.

Body folds (flexures) are prone to inflammatory rashes because of:

Relatively high skin temperature; moisture from sweating; and friction from movement of adjacent skin.

Bacteria and yeasts, which are normally resident on the skin, multiply in such environments and result in an irritated and macerated area of skin.
