In brief: Many causes

The most common rash that can affect these areas is eczema or atopic dermatitis.
Use only unscented and sensitive skin soaps, moisturizers, laundry detergents, and sunscreens only. This rash is usually managed by topical steroids and other medications such as elidel (pimecrolimus). Other rashes are possible too. Consult a dermatologist to evaluate and treat this issue.

In brief: Contact dermititis

Has your child been playing outside in the woods or rolling in the grass is there any new detergent or soap you are using.
Advise your child not to scratch and treat with either Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or 1% hydrocotisone cream i hope this helps! :).
