Dermatologist 's  Response

This is Dr. Rahul Nagar from New Delhi, India.
I am a qualified dermatologist.
From the history you have provided, the diagnosis could be any of the following: fungal infection, intertrigo, contact dermatitis, etc.

Try to fix up an appointment with a dermatologist near you. In the meanwhile, you must follow the following.
1) keep the area dry
2) use an anti fungal powder twice a day
3 avoid wearing tight undergarments
4) use a very mild soap like dove
5) do not clean with any irritants

Hope this helps you.

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from Tinea cruris which is getting worse after sweat secretion.
Presence of itching in groin along with soreness suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist / dermatologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for KOH mount preparation of skin scrapings from sctrum and groin area.
You should apply antifungal ointment along with oral preparation of antifungal medicines.
You should wear soft cotton cloths.
Avoid soap application.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
