Of course the most important thing is to try to identify the cause of the irritation and avoid it (are you allergic to something, or wearing clothing that is chafing, etc.).

If the skin is broken, yomamma's suggestion of using Neosporin, or any other similar over-the-counter triple antibiotic, will help prevent it from getting infected. If it's just inflamed or itchy, hydrocortisone cream will help. If it's just from dry skin, then a moisturizer might be all you need. If it doesn't get better in a few days, see a doctor.
