Hi Bdubuk,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that your rash seems to be due to dermatitis.

You can take antihistaminic like Levocetrizine 5 mg once a day.
Also apply locally skin cream containing antifungal like miconazole, antbiotic like gentamycin and a steroid like betamethasone. You can repeat this application 3-4 times a day on the rash.

If the problem persists, get yourself examined clinically by a Dermatologist.
I hope this is helpful to you.
