Brief Answer:
Perhaps you have Intertrigo- kindly upload Images

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.

Perhaps you have Intertrigo - Inflammation of a body fold. Intertrigo may burn and pain. Sweat, which gets trapped in groin due to apposition of groin folds weakens the skin. Weakened skin gets inflamed when it rubs against each other. This weakened, red and raw skin is called Intertrigo!! I request you to kindly upload a few Images in "Reports Section" so that I am able to confirm the diagnosis and guide you better.

Regards
