Detailed Answer:
welcome to health care magic, I share your concern and I will try to help you out in best possible way.
Rashes in the groin or genital area are usually caused by irritation of the skin from many sources, such as clothes rubbing against the skin. Rashes that occur without other symptoms are usually minor and often go away with home treatment.A common cause of a rash is contact with a substance that causes irritation or an allergic reaction (contact dermatitis).
Other rashes in groin or genital area are:
-Jock itch (ringworm of the skin of the groin)
-Scabies caused by tiny mites that burrow into the outer layers of the skin
Pubic lice
-Yeast infection (cutaneous candidiasis)
-Psoriasis. There are two types of genital psoriasis: inverse and penile. Inverse psoriasis causes bright red patches and may be itchy. Penile psoriasis causes pale red, scaling patches and does not itch or burn.
hence you please upload photographs of affected areas and also mention associated symptoms.

will be awaiting your reply.
wishing good health.
