Hello, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Seeing the complaints you submit, these complaints can be caused by several conditions such as miliaria, tinea versicolor, contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin), eczema and several other conditions. Due to the possibility of the causes of the symptoms that you feel on the skin are very many, it is highly recommended for you to check yourself directly to a dermatologist because basically every disease, especially skin diseases, can not be diagnosed based solely on complaints and do not see a picture of skin disorders that arise .
Your doctor may also recommend that you do some additional tests to help determine the diagnosis of your condition, such as a skin lift test, skin patch test, blood tests, etc. depending on your doctor's consideration of your condition. After further evaluations, the doctor will determine what your current skin condition is diagnosed and what is the best therapy that should be given to you.
For now, pay attention to what things are causing or aggravating your complaint, and avoid these things. Also keep your body clean, especially after you sweat. Change your clothes every day using clothes that are clean and comfortable. Do not use drugs or any material without a clear recommendation from a doctor. Also avoid using any skincare or cosmetics until they have been approved by your doctor.
I hope this helps.
