thanks for using health care magic.
From the description you have given, it sounds more likely that
you have a fungal ( yeast) infection which is due to Candida.
Candida infection is common in areas with skin contact,
with moisture and warmth. However, no matter how disturbing it
may be, it is a relatively benign condition which is very easy to treat
with antifungal drugs such as miconazole, clotrimazole, mycoster etc;
except in the case where it is super-infected with bacterial, antibiotics
will then be added to the treatment.
Another possible cause could be trauma following persisitent friction
following a very long walk.
There is no need to be ashame to see a doctor, because what happens between you and the doctor stay in the consultation room unless the doctor wants to be sued.
Best regrads and hope this helps you.

your problem seems to be most likely a fungus/yeast infection. Personnel hygiene is mandatory especially wearing loose fitting undergarments and make sure they are non-synthetic. Try applying zocon lotion twice daily and avoid tight garments.
