This is likely tinea cruris, known as "jock itch". Increased sweating can lead to an environment where fungal elements that live on our bodies can thrive. Using a daily powder after thoroughly drying the area will help absorb moisture during the day. A topical prescription anti-fungal cream obtained from your dermatologist will clear the rash up.
