Possibly...: Jock itch is a superficial fungal infection mostly associated with wet and mist skin areas, more common in athletes, for which OTC melds should suffice. If no improvement, or any bumps or rash appears, get it checked to rule out other possibilities or STD. Unprotected sex, outside of an strictly monogamous relationship should be avoided.

LIkely irritation or minor infection. Consider OTC clotrimazole anti-fungal, bacitracin topical anti-biotic, and see md to discuss treating ingrown hairs, assuming neither of you have other symptoms.
