Fungal Infection: That area is dark and moist with sweat.
It a perfect breeding ground for fungal infection
Hygiene is very important.
Keep the area clean and dry, especially after having a shower where you have specifically dry the area up.
You need to see your doctor to prescribe you some topical treatment after assessing the skin to confirm the above diagnosis.
