Hi,

This appears either to be a fungal infection or a disorder due to sweating called intertrigo.

You must keep the area clean and hygienic. Also avoid use of conditions/clothes which may induce sweat. You may instead use cotton garments. It may also help to use some anti-perspirant and OTC anti-histamines. Visit your dermatologist to get this evaluated and treated promptly.

Hope this helped.

Let us know if you may need further information.

Best regards
