Hi,Alexandra,it is always difficult to comment on skin disorder without looking at it.Just to give you rough idea as per the site and description,this could be some fungal infection like taeniasis.It is common in areas where skin comes in contact and have moisture.You need to apply anti fungal cream over it after confirmation of diagnosis by your doctor.In mean time ask her to avoid tight fitting clothes and keep the area dry.Thanks and buy.
