Brief Answer:
Intertrigo or ringworm infection, topical antifungal

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at Healthcaremagic
I have reviewed the attached photograph and it seems to be either intertrigo which is inflammation of the body fold or ringworm infection.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply antifungal cream like clotrimazole cream or miconazole cream on the affected areas twice daily for 2 weeks.
This should help in improving the rash.
