See a DR: Don't be silly. MANY possible diagnoses. You need a diagnosis and prescription. Meanwhile try OTC 1% Hydrocortisone cream.

Forget the lavender or coconut oil. You might smell nice but no therapeutic value.

Rashes: Knowing what the rash is and it's cause is helpful in both selecting the correct treatment and how to prevent reoccurrence. Absent that a few reasonable things to try would be: 1% Hydrocortisone cream, organic unrefined coconut oil, lavender essential oil All of these are over the counter and available at a health store. If these fail consult a physician.
