Intertrigo: Intertrigo is the word used to describe a rash in body folds. Affected skin is reddened and uncomfortable. Intertrigo is particularly common in those who are overweight.
Body folds (flexures) are prone to inflammatory rashes because of:
relatively high skin temperature,
moisture from insensible water loss and sweating cannot evaporate,
friction from movement of adjacent skin results in chafing?
