Brief Answer:
Jock Itch

Detailed Answer:
This is also called as Jock Itch, considering your age and the area you have mentioned.

The treatment is simple.
Clean the area and make it dry. Apply liquid povidone iodine, this will kill the other bacteria which can cause secondary infection due to the itching and skin pealing off.
And of course apply anti-fungal lotion or ointment or powder whichever is available over the counter. Twice daily.
Use loose underwear and pants.
Avoid the areas which make you sweat more.
Just on a safer side get the blood sugar checked.
