How do I treat a sweat rash behind my ears? I ski everyday, rash caused by wearing face mask daily. It is bumpy and a little itchy and a bit hot.

In brief: Rash

Clean and moisturize with hypoallergenic lotions and soaps.
Wash or clean the part of face mask touching your face. You can try otc topical Hydrocortisone cream or anti-itch creams (not for open sores). If it persists u should have a doctor see it to consider treating for something other than just "irritation dermatitis.".

In brief: Clean & moisturize

Just keep it clean with frequent washing and then use a lotion for dry or damaged skin.
