Hi there.
Nope . No cancer.
Appears to be a fungal infection with secondary impetiginization or a bacterial infection...hence the odour. It is otherwise known as 'intertrigo'.
Please do visit your GP or dermatologist on the ground as you will require prescrption medications both local application & systemic that may include antifungals & antibiotics.
Trust this relaxes you & gives you direction & all will be well soon. Cheers!
