Nothing to serious there

Not any kind of STD like herpes or genital warts

That's a fungal skin infection and it may have been triggered by your sweating

But nothing worrisome

You can use an over the counter antifungal cream like this

Applied twice a day for two weeks

That will clear it all up

Please let me know if you need any more information

Can it be transferred to my wife through sexual contact?

No--it's not contagious
