It sounds like it might be an irritation from friction- like clothing rubbing up against it, or sweat.  You mentioned putting a cold compress on it- was that because of pain or itching?  You can try to keep the area dry and wear loser fitting clothing to see if that helps- but to be certain of the cause, you need to see a doctor that can examen you in person and gather more of your medical history.
