I had bright red stripe in the fold of skin between mons and thigh, which appeared two days after I got a wax. It did not itch or burn, but it was BRIGHT RED. It was diagnosed as a candidal skin infection, but as I am allergic to most topical antifungals, I took Fluconazal instead (also called Diflucan--it's an oral medicine for yeast infections.) I took 1 150mg tablet and another 150 mg tablet 24 hours later. I also took 4 doses of Benadryl 6 hours apart and treated the area 3 times a day with Triple Paste (a kind of diaper rash cream, hard to find but worth it!) The Benadryl really helped with the redness, and the Triple Paste seemed to help protect the skin without causing any peeling or staining clothes too badly. Similar to athletes foot, you can get an infection of the groin which makes you very itchy in the inner thigh. See your GP or ask your pharmacist (caniston is usually the answer)  I had this as a very allergic reaction to taking NeoCitran against a cold. It peeled off like a sunburn and took almost 2 weeks.  I currently have this and have had it several times through my life. I have narrowed it down that I may have an allergy from anti-allergy meds,reaction to dye from new boxers or exposure to someone with strep. It's rather painful and currently is burning like a sunburn with beginning signs of peeling. It usually lasts a week with peeling and then finally disappearing. I was once hospitalized for this as due to the fact it was suspected to be flesh eating disease but obviously couldn't have been because it wasn't moving anywhere else.
Spectro Gel works best and apparently apply with Vinegar from a spray bottle gets rid of the burning.

  A candidal skin infection or yeast infection can be a lifelong battle. You need to get your insides right and your skin will follow.

The Diflucan gives the yeast a good hit, but you need to follow up with heavy doses of probiotics to help your body fight the candidis. I found a super probiotic shot- El Viajero Bio-Salud! at my local Walmart, 5 doses for 88 cents. It contains 12.7 billion live active cultures including Lactobacilius. This is nearly 4 times the amount in most yogurts.

You may also find a beverage called Kefir beneficial. It has changed my life. Kefir contains beneficial yeast as well as the friendly probiotic bacteria found in yogurt. Loaded with vitamins and minerals, it contains easily digestible complex proteins.

Kefir is a balanced and nourishing food that contributes to a healthy immune system. Kefir has been used to help patients suffering from AIDS, herpes, cancer and chronic fatigue. People with sleep disorders benefit from kefir's tranquilizing effects, as do people with depression.

Kefir helps to prevent intestinal disorders, promotes bowel movement, reduces flatulence and creates a healthier digestive system. Kefir is a great remedy for digestive disorders. In fact, kefir's cleansing effect on the body helps establish a balanced inner ecosystem for optimum health and longevity.

Hope this helps. I have suffered for years with what I know now was yeast infections. It can cause numerous symptoms, from diarrhea, bloating, and gas to fatigue, insomnia, mental confusion and depression. I've seen a succession of doctors, who never connected the skin rash with what was going on with my gut. I even saw a gastroenterologist who had diagnosed irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and Diverticulitis. For the rash, I keep a spray bottle with water and a little vinegar to use after a shower or if the itching gets intense. I also use a colloidal silver salve, as the prescription ointments are irritating to my skin.
