Thanks for writing in.

The rash you are describing can be seborrheic dermatitis, insect bite ,pregnancy related dermatoses,folliculitis etc.
Is any other site affected?
Is any family member affected?
Is it scaly?
Does it discharge pus?

Please answer the above questions to help you better.

If you can upload good quality photos of the affected skin ,it will help a lot in predicting the condition.

Till then you can apply calamine lotion over the area for itching.
