Thanks for the query.
Brief looks like fungal infection
Detailed answer...
Your symptoms suggest it to be a fungal infection or TINEA CRURIS or contact dermatitis.
Treatment involves local application of anti fungal medications.
Most cases of fungal infection become all right with OTC products like miconazole,CLOTRIMAZOLE ,terbinafine etc.
You can get creams like lamisil,nizoral,mycelex etc from the pharmacist.
Sometimes severe cases may require oral antifungal tablets.
You should keep applying local antifungal cream for at least 7-10 days more even after your fungal infection is gone,because it tends to reoccur.
Wear loose cotton underwears.
Give proper air to the area for sometime everyday by removing your clothes.
Don't share your towel with others.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
