Thanks,
I have examined the photos, and this fits not appear to be anything serious at the present.
Possibly mild irritation but unlikely to be anything to worry about in the absence of any other symptoms.
Just relax, don't observe this daily.
And check back if there are any symptoms.

Thanks,

The photo is very detailed,

However, in the absence of any open sore, pus discharge, large inguinal swelling etc. this appears to be just local irritation, in my opinion,

Ignore and and observe after a week or so - not daily,
Avoid excessive friction, strong hygiene products locally, too much sweating,
