Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from fungal infection in groin region which is called as "Tinea Cruris".
Presence of severe itch with red lesion suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist/ dermatologist and should go for thorough check up.
You should take antifungal ointments along with oral antifungal medicines.
Avoid soap application in affected area.
Wear soft cotton undergarments.
take care,
