Thank you for contacting Healthcare magic.
The most likely possibility could be a fungal infection of the skin in the affected area called as tinea cruris. In this condition, red itchy lesions occur in the groin. Treatment with topical creams of anti fungal medications such as miconazole is usually effective. You should apply the cream twice daily for about six weeks.
Please get back if you require any further information.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM
