Thanks for the query and photograph.
It's looking like urticaria an allergic reaction.
Take an antihistamine tablet like cetrizine and apply cortisone cream for immediate relief.

Brief Answer:
Use clotrimazole

Detailed Answer:
Hello
You have developed fungal infection.
It is common in folds of skin.
I treat such cases with an antifungal cream like clotrimazole to be applied twice daily for a month.
It is safe and effective and usually available over the counter.
Take an antihistamine if there is itch.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
