welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
it look like fungal infection or intertrigo .
you need to apply clotrimazole powder 2 times a day .
keep the area dry and clean
wear loose and cotton cloths
avoid prolong sitting in one position
for itching you can take anti histaminic medicine
better to consult dermatologist .
i hope i answered your question .

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description sound like fungus infection
If it is, local and/or systemic anti-fungal can cure
Get your self examined by a dermatologist / appropriate treatment demands proper diagnosis...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
