Itchy rash in the skin fold between crotch and right leg, burns, has foul odor. What can I do ?

Near daily I get this rash in the skin fold between my crotch and my right leg. It s itchy, burns somewhat, and produces a very foul odor along with a clear creamy moisture. Almost like sweat, yet slightly thicker. I am also prone to severe boils on the inside of my thighs. What is this rash, and what can I do about these?

Hi and welcome
The rash could be a bacterial or fungal or combined infection. You needs to be investigated for that. Apply antibacterial creams to the part and keep the part in hygienic condition. If it improves than continue with that else needs to consult your doctor and get proper oral medication and tropical steroids for local application. Certain steps to prevent the disease are:
always use a clean washcloth and towel each time.
1. Do not share towels, clothing, razors, and other personal care products with other family members.
2. Wash your hands thoroughly after touching the skin lesions.
3. Good general health and hygiene help to prevent infection.
