Weird breaks in the skin or "cuts" in groin area

Guys:

I've been having these weird breaks or "cuts" in the skin, deep in the folds of my groin area, way between where my legs meet my groin.

When I get them, usually only one appears, then they "heal". They are small, like a centimeter or two, and red. When I inspect them really close, it looks as if the skin there is torn.

I wouldn't have even noticed it, except when I'm taking a shower and wash down there, it stings for a few seconds when the soap hits it.

Do any other guys get these, or should I go get checked out by a doctor? I freaked out before and thought it was Herpes or something. So I got tested, it came back negative...but I'm still freaking out.

Thanks,

I get this too and have had it checked out by my GP. It's just a sweat rash and normally goes away again in a few days if you keep the area clean and dry.
