In brief: Rash- need addle inf
There isn't enough information here.
It could be a recurrent dermatitis (possibly seborrheic), fungal, or viral. How long does the rash last? Is there any pain, burning or itching?

It sounds like a viral infection. They tend to recur in exactly the same spot and last about that period of time. I recommend you see a dermatologist soon after an outbreak. They may want to get a culture to confirm the diagnosis.
