In brief: Don't use it

Tea tree oil will just irritate the area more.
It's the last thing to used for jock itch or other red irritation in the groin area. You probably need either an antifungal or antibiotic cream Best to check with a doctor, but if you want to try to treat yourself, start with an antifungal. A pharmacist can help, or such products will be stocked near products for jock itch or athlete's foot.

In brief: Yes

Tea-tree oil is great on the skin for fungal infections such as Jock itch.
It can be used on the buttocks and on the labia majora. It can also be used inside the vagina as a 20% solution on a tampon and left in over-night, though there are better medications for this. Best wishes!
