In brief: Jock itch

Head down to your local drug store and pick up a jock itch treatment.
When choosing a treatment be sure to select one with plenty of zinc oxide as the active ingredient. Many people opt for gold bond powder which contains zinc oxide and also helps absorb moisture. Diaper rash creams have also been used with positive results.
