In brief: OTC antifungal cream
Many of the fungi that cause groin rash-jock itch or the medical term tinea cruris-are sensitive to over the counter anti-fungal cremes-like those that treat athletes foot.
Just buy some tinactin, (tolnaftate) lamasil, etc.-apply it two times a day sparingly to the rash, keep it dry and the rash should get better in 4-7 days. If it persists go see your doctor.
