Hello,
From the symptoms it can be contact dermatitis, allergies, viral rash, sweat dermatitis or heat rash. Even atopic dermatitis and eczema needs to be ruled out. Use a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Also use cotton clothes and change the clothes twice if there is any increased sweating. Try keeping the skin free of sweat as far as possible. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort. For the itching antihistaminics like Benadryl or Claritin can be taken.

If the symptoms persist then please get an evaluation done by a dermatologist.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
