Groin rash: It could be related to a fungal infection from sweating, has nothing to do with allergies, you should have someone look at it to treat it properly.

How long?: There are many potential causes. If it lasts over 6 weeks, see an allergist. If it is short term, try some otc antihistamine up to 4 x the regular frequency but watch out for drowsiness. If it did not work, see an allergist.
