Most likely a yeast (candida) infection. Common in moist areas of the body . U may need an oral antifungal

It is not healed. If it persists see a Urologist or your MD again for re-evluation.

impossible to say: It is impossible to say without being able to see the rash. Have a dermatologist evaluate it.
