Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering from can be intertrigo or tinea cruris, erythrasma.
All are very much treatable.
Also I would like to know-
Do you have itching over the area?
Is there well demarcated border to the area.
Is it growing or static?
Is there burning sensation?
Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Answer the questions and upload the photographs and we can continue the discussion here.
Hope this helps.
