Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering from can be intertrigo or tinea cruris, erythrasma.
All are very much treatable.
Also I would like to know-
Do you have itching over the area?
Is there well demarcated border to the area.
Is it growing or static?
Is there burning sensation?
Can you upload photos of the affected area?
Answer the questions and upload the photographs and we can continue the discussion here.
Hope this helps.

i was diagnosed with pruritus ani several years ago, and despite being very conscious to avoid itching 'down there' and applying steriod creams and even jock itch creams (all at the recommendations of my proctologist) the itching sensation has progressively gotten worse! I literally feel like I am going to jump out of my skin if I do not itch my anus and feel like there is something more internally that I'll never 'satisfy' if that makes sense. I really want to get over this itching and scratching business asap and lead a normal life!
