You seem to have repeated episodes of intertrigo. This is combined bacterial and fungal infection of the skin. u can apply candid cream on the area twice a day .that will give you relief from the burning sensation and cracks.
It happens due to conditions if heat and humidity. Due to the accumulation of sweat the fungus and the bacteria get a chance to grow and cause symptoms.

Hope this helps. Take care
