Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr. kakkar (dermatologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

You seem to have a condition known as 'Intertrigo' which is Inflammation of the body folds due to sweating, rubbing and secondary infection with yeast/ candida.
I suggest you to use a topical antifungal and anti-inflammatory combination cream e.g Canesten - HC cream (contains clotrimazole 1% and hydrocortisone 1%). Use it twice daily for at least 2 weeks.
