In brief: Fungal

Sounds fungal in nature- try some over the counter lotrimin (clotrimazole) crea.
If ineffective, you may need to see a doctor to determine the cause. Moist areas in the folds of the body are also at risk for intertrigo- which may be caused by fungus, yeast, bacteria. Keep the area clean and dry and visit your doctor if it does not get better..

In brief: Sounds

Sounds like intertrigo.
Most important thing is to keep area dry. Blow dry after shower and dust liberally with powder. Apply Hydrocortisone cream 1% twice daily if needed.
