Greasy thick yellowish residue between scrotum, inner thigh. What could be the reason?

I have noticed for a while that I occasionally grow hairs on my scrotum and between my scrotum and inner thigh that are coated in a kind of thick yellowish residue. It seems that I can scrape it off, it seems a bit greasy. I am a dancer and have to wear a dance belt which is similar to a jock strap and the area is covered tightly and gets sweaty very often so I m wondering if it is a result of that or is it something I should be worried about?

Thank you for the query.

This area (especially when covered with clothes) has moisture and warm environment. This creates great environment for infection, especially for fungal infection. It is more possible if you have some redness or itching in this area as well.
I suggest you to consult dermatologist with this issue. Some antifungal agent might be necessary. You should also keep this area dry and clean. Lose underwear is a good idea.

Hope this will help.
