Brief Answer:
Regarding rash

Detailed Answer:
hi.

I suggest you to use a moisturizer, frequently. I think you might also need to apply a moderately potent topical steroid e.g triamcinolone acetonide cream or mometasone furoate cream, twice daily over the affected area. In addition I suggest you to take an oral antihistamine e.g cetrizine 10mg tablet for symptomatic relief from itching.

take care
Let me know if you need any more assistance
