How sad that at your age, you cannot afford a doctor.  Are you in the US?  Perhaps you can get Medicaid.  
I would try an antifungal ointment first.  If you sweat, maybe dust the whole area with powder after the ointment.  Maybe the Gold Bond menthol one, or a powder that says antifungal.
Does this seem to be associated with the band at the bottom of your bra?

Lotrimin cream is what I would try first.  If a full course of that doesn't help, then I'd suggest Psoriaflora cream.

The first cream is for yeast and the second is for psoriasis.
