Intertrigo : The rash could be intertrigo or a cellulitis. If it is hot to touch, see a physician as soon as possible to make sure it is not a cellulitis which would need oral antibiotics quickly to treat. Intertrigo is a rash that occurs in folds of skin and can be treated with topical creams usually.
