Brief Answer:
Needs direct examination for diagnosis.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
From your description the most possible causes in my opinion are-
1. Dermatitis- due to skin infection, allergy,etc.
2. Dry skin- Xerosis.
3. Fungal infection it there is itching.
A direct examination by a dermatologist is the best way to get it diagnosed.
Hydrocortisone cream (1%) is available without a prescription and may soothe many rashes.
The rashes usually take 5-7 days to disappear.
If the rashes become more of purple rather than red then you must consult a dermatologist immediately.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
Regards.

minor infection likely.

Hello.
If hydrocortisone has not helped you then oral antifungals and steroids are needed after consulting a dermatologist. It is likely to be a minor skin infection.
