History of eczema, scarring on the butt crack post full body rash. What could be the cause?

Hi, I m a 19 yo female from Australia and has suffered eczema all my life. Since being in Orlando, my skin has broken out into a full body rash , which has since disappeared except for scarring left along my butt crack. Is there anything that would explain my severe breakout, or is there anything other than eczema it could be?
