Irritation or Yeast: An irritant dermatitis or localized yeast or fungal infection can cause rashes in this area. See a physician for evaluation and prescriptions to treat this.

See Your Doctor: Most likely a yeast infection, but could be herpes. It needs to be examined and cultured (swab for herpes and KOH prep for yeast). Yeast can be easily treated, but can be a symptom of other problems, like diabetes.
