thanks for writing in,

It may well be psoriasis or an allergic rash.

Is it red, scaly and itchy? If yes then it may be psoriasis.

Is it oozing? If yes, then it may be an allergic rash.

The good thing is that, the treatment is more or less the same.

You may use a potent corticosterod cream like mometasone once daily for 20 days. You will get a good improvement. ALso moisturize the area well.

if the problem recurs, consult a dermatologist.
