Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

The red rash that you have seems to be related to an allergic reaction or a contact dermatitis. Since the area is hot to touch, the chances of an infection are present.

It is best to take a systemic antibiotic with oral anti allergics to decrease the chances of infection.
You can get the necessary medicines prescribed from your dermatologist after a physical examination.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.

Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
