Thanks for your query.

Based on the facts and photograph that you have posted it appears that you have Ring Worm Infection (Jack Itch) in the groin.

Please take anti fungal medication like Fluconazole twice daily along with topical anti fungal ointment like Meconazole for local application over affected area twice daily.

Ensure to wash your private parts and groin with warm water twice daily before applying ointment.

This will get cured within a week.
