Brief Answer:
Probably a fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query,

You might have developed fungal infection.

The area of groin and around buttock is very moist and is prone to develop these infections.

Treatment can be with anti fungal powder.

Various anti fungal powders like candid, clodid etc are available.

These can help reduce the moisture as well as control the infection.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

Wishing you good health,
Thank you
