In brief: Depends upon cause

Usually caused by excessive sweating & groin moisture as well as a superficial fungal infection.
Probably ok to have sex, but you might like to pretreat yourself with an antifungal over-the-counter medication like lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream or antifungal powder. Try and let air get to the skin and wear loose underpants and pants. Treatment should be continues for about 2 weeks. See dr. For pustules or boils.
