Brief Answer:
It can be a fungal infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
As per your description it seems like a fungal infection.
Is there any associated itching or burning sensations?
As a first line management you can try clotrimazole lotion for symptomatic relief. Avoid tight fitting inner wears and maintain good personal hygiene.
Hope I have answered your query.
Thanks
