Thanks for your reply.

Does that rash itch?
Since how long has it been there?
Are you talking of a rash in the groin region or around the anus?

Normally a rash in the groin region is caused by fungal infection. And local antifungal creams would take care of such rashes in a few weeks. Antifungal creams are available over the counter at most location; if not, you can consider consulting your doctor.

Keeping the area dry is important. Moisture helps in fungal infection.
Change your under garments at a regular basis.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have other concerns.

Take care
