Hi Momof3
It may be an irritation but could also be a fungal infection of the skin, especially if it itches a lot - rather let your doctor have a look as you may need an antifungal cream to use on it.

Is it itchy or burning? It sounds like you need to get a prescription cream (maybe cortisone based) which will work very quickly - take it to your gp and show it to him/her then you can get the right treatment.
