Hi, this is likely to be a fungal infection commonly known as 'jock itch'. It typically causes a red, itchy rash in the groin, inner thighs, genitalia and may extend to the anus and perineum. You will have to use antifungal creams like tolnaftate, miconazole or clotrimazole.In case of extreme redness and itching whichj is not respeonding to antifungals alone, you can use a combination of antifungal with steroid formulation.
Besides medicines, you also need to take other measures . Lok up this site.

Please consult a dermatologist about these options.
