Sue:

Most likely you have a rash called intertrigo, aggravated by skin rubbing against skin.  Yeast infection is possible but much less likely.  To start, try OTC hydrocortisone 1% twice a day, along with powder to keep the area dry.  If that doesn't help, try a dermatologist visit.

Best.

I have developed what look like chicken Pox type sores under and beneath both breasts; as wll as the outer calves of my legs, and on my arms. I have been to 2 different doctors, they gave me somthing for it, but never quite explainedwhat it was. The medicine they gave me did not work, and I have tryed EVERYTHING, I have had this for two years, and I am very upset about it. I can't wear shorts or a dress, and I live in Texas, and it's in the 100's everyday. (too hot to wear blue jeans)PLEASE help me, I don't know what else to do.
