its seems like a subcutaneous infection...more likely a fungal infection..itshappens due to prolonged sweating at sites which are prone for frequent friction like the inner surface of the thigh..i would suggest you to keep yourself clean and change your clothes frequently..wear soft cotton bottoms and underclothes to prevent further irritation..use anti-fungal dust powders available in the market..and would definitely advice for a dermatologist reference.
