welcome to HealthcareMagic
Since you have worn wet underwear you may have developed fungal infection in your groin which is giving rise to itching and redness.So you can apply an ointment containing antifungal/steroid/antibacterial which will be available over the counter and you need to keep the area dry.You should get relief in a day or two.
