Brief Answer:
Tinea cruris along with folliculitis

Detailed Answer:
Thank you. I have viewed the images.
Yes you have fungal infection (tinea cruris) as well as bacterial folliculitis.
I suggest you to apply a topical antifungal e.g luliconazole 1 % cream Or sertaconazole 2%cream, twice daily for 4 weeks.
In addition I suggest that you to take an oral antibiotic e.g either Amoxicillin or Cephalexin 500mg, thrice daily for a week. These are prescription medications and I suggest you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.
You may as well take a tab. Cetrizine 10mg once daily for symptomatic relief from itching.
