Thanks for posting your query.

The rash can mimic all of the above. The characteristic features of a rash can be read and understood only by an expert Dermatologist.

If I can have a look at the red patches I will be able to tell you for sure as to what is it. Could you please post a picture here? It is good if it is taken under sun light. After seeing the pictures I can guide you better.
