User avatar Hello Mikewill62,

This may simply be due to increasing moisture in your groin area. It may also be due to a fungal infection. If you are having any itching a fungal infection is more likely. You may want to try a course of an over-the-counter antifungal cream (jock itch cream) to see if this helps. The medications have usage instructions included.

If this doesn't help I would suggest you talk with your doctor about this the next time you are in for a check up.

Best wishes.
