Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
You are suffering from fungal infection called tinea cruris and corporis.This is usually seen in occluded parts of the body(folds) where one sweats a lot.You need a course of oral anti fungal along with topical creams and anti fungal powder.This needs to be continued for at-least a month , after which you should see that it doesn't recur. Always maintain good hygienic conditions.
