dear customer,

The red rash me be due to some common causes like allergy, infection, dermatitis, cellulitis, etc.As per the symptoms the chances of infectious causes should be ruled out first.

The infection of the skin may cause redness and rash in such area and such symptoms.The antibiotic ointments like betadiene, soframycin is helpful in such symptoms.

The other possibility could be the allergy which may also cause such symptoms.The antihistamine drugs like cetrizine, loratadine , avil are useful in such symptoms.The steroid ointment like betasol, clobetasone, etc may be applied locally to ease the symptoms.

Let me know if you have any doubt

Thank you
