Sensitive skin: The most common conditions which fit your symptoms include eczema or a yeast infection such as candidal intertrigo. It is recommended that you use unscented soaps and laundry detergents only to minimize skin irritation. If the condition persists, seeing a physician for prescriptions for a low potency topical steroid and/or an anti-yeast medication may help.
