In brief: Get it looked at

Rider32, what do you ride-bareback? It is impossible to say for sure without seeing the rash, but it sounds like a fungal infection, known as tinea cruris.
An anti fungal cream applied as directed and making sure that the area is completely dry before getting dressed will discourage the fungal growth. Do not use powder with cornstarch. ? Allergy rash - hydrocortizone cream will be more helpful.
