Most likely....: Dermatitis in these areas is most likely an allergic reaction, systemic. Perhaps a food. Early eczema or even psoriasis could also be the culprit. Please visit your dermatologist for a definitive diagnosis and proper treatment.

Dermatitis : Sounds like contact dermatitis which is allergic relation to a new substance like laundry detergent, fabrics soaps and the like and suggest you see a dermatologist.
