Thank you for your query at

You don't seem to be having anything major; it is certainly not cancer. The skin is peeling off and causing the troubles.
I shall be keen to have a look at the pic of that area. After seeing the picture, i can give you a more accurate diagnosis.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
