Hello,The photographs do give an impression that these are what are called as intertrigo which are lesions which appear at folds and where there is excessive sweating.
The likely intertrigo you have are yeast based and called by name monilial intertrigo.These show raw red areas with satellite rashes near by.
The treatment given would generally be canesten creme or powder.
Differential diagnosis is seborrheic dermatitis,a scaly lesion relating to a dandruff like condition occuring in the intertrigenous areas.
Do consult your doctor and you should be fine with therapy.
