Brief Answer:
Fungal infection

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the photograph.
It is looking like tinea cruris a fungal infection.
I treat such cases with a topical antifungal cream like clotrimazole. Apply thrice a day on the affected area.
You can try this.
It is safe and effective and gives good results within a week.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you
