Will you please do kindly call me so l will be able to show you via video call

This looks like intertrigo.   Its a yeast infection of the skin fold.   Its not an allergic reaction.   Steroid cream will make it worse.   Intertrigo can be treated with over the counter Canestan cream.

I am sorry but I am not able to provide a phone call right now. Your question is now open to other experts, who may be able to provide a call. I can also continue to help you by text.

Thanks Doctor will you please suggest which cream should I get for this Intertrigo. Please Doctor do kindly prescribed me the right medication for this yeast infection and also please advise me what diet to follow as well as whether the dark pigment also will vanish once l will start using the cream
I suggested the cream above.  Canestan cream.   It does not require a prescription.   The black area is hyperpigmentation and should fade, though it may take weeks to months.    Diet has nothing to do with this issue.
