Rec evaluation: A brown velvety color change in the folds of the skin is called acanthosis nigricans and is associated with pre-diabetes and rarely cancer. This is not usually itchy so recommend evaluation for cause.

Tinea cruris?: Tinea cruris comes to mind based on the location and description. This is a fungal rash, the fungal organism normally residing on our skin and proliferating in areas of warmth and moisture such as this. That’s one thought.
