Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be contact dermatitis or sweat dermatitis. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. Application of mild corticosteroid cream and oral antiinflammatories like ibuprofen/acetaminophen are also helpful. If the symptoms are severe then it will be best to consult a dermatologist and get seborrheic dermatitis ruled out.
I hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted in case you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
