welcome to health care magic family,
it seems that your husband has fungal infection of genitals,if this is there are all chances that you also can be affected.
you consult your skin specialist so that diagnosis can be made and treatment can be started.
you tell your husband about local care of genitals,shaving pubic hair regularly,maintaining local hygiene of penis and scrotum.
