The rashes on the groin and the genital areas are most probably due to fungal infection which is known as intertrigo. It usually occurs due to sweating or moisture, specially in warm weather. Sometimes bacterial superinfection may occurs. Keep area dry and cool. Use cotton and loose underwears. You will need antifungal cream and or antibacterial cream. You can try OTC lotrimin, if needed you can add neosporin cream too. If they do not show any improvement, consult a dermatologist for examination and definitive diagnosis and treatment.

Wish your early recovery.
