I wonder if you have a fungal infections (yeast maybe) caused by moisture in the folds. Be sure to wash very gently and use powder there. I've also heard of people using deodorant antiperspirant to help keep it dry. Meanwhile, if it could be a fungal infection use an antifungal ointment. Since you aren't sure what it is, it would be a good idea to get it checked, then, you'll know for sure where to go from there and can follow your doctor's advice on care and treatment. Or it could be that your bra is too tight and causing the area to hurt even after being taken off.
