7 days after protected sex and unprotected oral. I have a small red area where my leg & groin area meet. No bumps, is this from underwear or herpes???

In brief: Red area

Its more likely a skin yeast if its in this area.
Herpes would have blisters showing up. In the middle of winter and during swimming season we see a fair amount of tinea (yeast) infections near the underwear line. Try some lotrimin (clotrimazole) and see if that helps.
