Hi Debbie, thank you for the question.
This is a difficult question to answer over the internet and your best option would be to consult a dermatologist or your family doctor who can examine the skin and recommend the appropriate treatment. There are a number of possibilities from dermatitis, eczema, fungal infections, reactions to the sun or medication, etc. As a general rule an over the counter anti-fungal and/or over the counter steroid cream may alleviate the symptoms you are experiencing.
