Thanks for writing to us.
There could be many causes for such itchy rash in the concerned area. It could be due to allergic dermatitis, frictional due to clothing, milliaria, fungal, sweat induced, lichen planus etc.

As dermatology is completely a visual field, I would appreciate if you could upload an image of the concerned area.
Hoping to hear from you soon.
