Moisturize: It sounds like you are dry and chafing. Look at what clothing you are wearing and what you did on the days that you are getting the rash. Go with cotton clothes and change frequently. Moisturize often, the greasier is usually better. Are you using any fragrance products (body wash, etc)? If so get rid of them for a while and see what happens.
