Child having rash in inner thigh, occasionally itchy and spreading. What could it be?

My daughter, 8 years old, has what appears to be a rash on her inner theigh. The rash started off the size of a half dollar and now is the size of a baseball and has spread to the other side. This started 6 weeks ago. I have put ointment, she states it is occasionally itchy...also put antiitch cream...any clues of what this might be? The best way to describe the rash is raised looking spider veins
