In brief: Yeast

Usually this is a yeast infection, like athlete's foot.
Same bug. Could be mechanical damage, std or believe it or not sun damage or exposure to uv light (suntanning salon). If it itches, usually yeast. But, like you have heard me say, can't diagnosis a rash over the internet or phone.

agree. It is also possible this could be an autoimmune problem and you should have an ANA test performed if it persists.
