See Your Doctor Now: The info you give suggests Folliculitis, a bacterial skin infection due to friction trauma to your skin from wearing tight clothing; now infected with bacteria. Itching is common. To prevent in future: wash with soap/water daily after work, dry & air-dry well, apply powder before work. Visual inspection is needed to correctly diagnose your rash; antibiotic may also be needed. See your doctor now.
