  • Using some warm water on the affected areas helps in getting instant relief. The warm water will help reduce the swelling and irritation and get rid of the sweat and blood from the rash.
  • After that, sit on a cool marble or stone surface. You can also apply ice or heat packs to your pants, but avoid using them directly on the skin. If none of these steps provide relief, it could be a symptom of a yeast infection so you should visit your doctor.
