Our expert says:
Their smelly nature of the folds usually indicates infection with either bacteria or yeast cells (Malassezia). Apart from the remedies that you already use, you can also use soap or shampoo that contains chlorhexidine, as it may be successful to control both bacteria and yeast cells. Ultimately, if it is chronically recurrent, surgical resection of the folds is the best way to prevent recurrence.
