Skin irritation: Usually, these rashes occur from local irritation. A type of diaper rash can occur if the penile skin is exposed to the moisture and abrasion of wet underwear. More rarely, allergic reactions that present in the skin are sometimes seen in the groin. Try to keep the area clean and dry with nightly sitz baths.
