Yeast infection: Hi Edward, Candida yeast infection on intertriginous areas such as groin underarm can cause rash, esp If those are always moist ,if due to ur job or other causes prevalent at warm climate. Since you said it is also warm , pls see a dermatologist Or private MD if you have other underlying conditions such as diabetes etc Whc may predispose. If infection, these are readily treated.

You can try using a Blow-Dryer on warm several times a day and after bath until you see your doctor
