In brief: Work out itch
May simply be heat rash aka prickly heat.
Salt in sweat can be irritating to the skin, & some sweat ducts & hair follicles may be blocked. Occurs especially in hot, humid environments. Wash areas with mild soap, rinse with cool water, pat dry. Use air conditioning or go to areas with it.
