From the description this would appear to be likely an infected heat rash, along the creases.
Another possibility is a fungal rash.
I believe that since this is the first time, you should be evaluated by your doctor for the cause of this rash.
In the meanwhile use of a local antibiotic/ antifungal cream maybe tried to relieve the symptoms,
