Red bumps on inner thighs, no itching. Had hysterectomy and C-sections. Have chest infection

I am a 31 year old female and I hope I have a simple heat rash , Both my inner thighs are really irritated red with little red bumps. The area burns, no itching whatsoever, I put a baby wipe on it thinking the cool would help and had mixed feelings because that burned some too but took a lot of the heat out of the area. At the moment I do have a chest infection. I had an abdominal hysterectomy September of 2011 and have struggled with the incision ever since. I had two c sections prior and had no problem whatsoever. It will be normal for a week or two then it is red, and not the entire incision mostly left side, becomes red and inflamed looking like a sun burn, patchy like a sun burn I guess is what I m trying to say. I have nystatin in powder form and I want to put that there to soak up moisture and I think it will help. I probably should also add that I have posture problems, scheuermann s disease where between my shoulder blades are hunching. In the past I have dealt with blackheads that my doctor said were from clothes rubbing more than likely because of the way I walk or that they don t fit properly. I appreciate any information you have to offer.

Thanks for posting the qwery.
Your lesion seems like intertrigo I.e. Inflammation due to friction between opposing surface.
Please investigate for routine blood test along with blood sugar levels.
Keep the area dry and apply proper antimicrobial creams and antifungal preparations on those lesions after proper dermatological evaluation.
