It could be a yeast or other fungal infection. Get a tube of Lotrimin (not the Ultra formula, just the regular one because Ultra caused little tiny cysts for me in that area). All the Lotrimin creams are the same, whether they say they are for athlete's foot or jock itch or whatever, because it's all the same fungus. After showering and thoroughly drying the area, rub the cream in. Follow the directions exactly as far as how often and how many weeks. If it is a fungus, it should start feeling soothed fairly quickly.
It will be critically important to wash all your towels and underwear in hot water or at least warm water with 3/4 cup baking soda to kill the fungus. If you have athlete's foot, you have to treat your feet and socks this way too or you will pass it back and forth.
People who are overweight have even more trouble than slim people because of skin-on-skin contact. So if you need to lose weight, and even if you don't, sugar feeds yeast/fungus, so eat healthy with lots of veggies and lean meat and no sugar or simple carbs. Sugars like that just feed yeast.
