Thanks for posting your query.
As you said that you are not sexually active it is not sexually tranmitted.
It is only sweat and sebum with apocrine secretion which has produced excessively and resultrd in chafed skin. It may be worsened by intertigo that is rubbing of inner thighs.
I suggest the following
1. Use loose outfits and inner wears
2. Use anti fungal powders
3. Take bath teice a day
4. Kep iner thihs dry
5. If there is no improvement visit a drrmatologist
Bye have a good day
