In brief: Emphysema

Emphysema is a lung disease most commonly associated with smoking.
What you're describing sounds like a yeast infection. This can occur in the folds of the skin, especially in overweight individuals. The key to addressing it in most cases is to keep the area dry and, if necessary, to use an over-the-counter antifungal cream or spray. However, it sounds like you may now have a secondary bacterial infection, which will probably not be treatable without some help from a doctor.
