Ouch! raw skin under my stomach roll
What you need is an anti-fungal powder like Zeasorb. Take photos-- as people suggest-- if you might ever require plastics. There is also a topical cream called Vusion your doctor can prescribe that works well.

I've had the same problem for years. Under the belly and breast burns. Trial and error has brought me to use A & D Ointment. Desitin is good but messy, powder clumps. Make sure you wash often and dry well. A thin layer of ointment goes a long way.
It could help you with plastics later on. It helped get me approved.
I sometimes use a hairdryer on low to make sure spots like this get really dry. I have prescription cream from the Dr for this and I use a powder with cornstarch.

Lotrasone or any OTC antifungal will clear it up (per my GYN). My PCP gave me the prescription lotrisone lotion which will clears it up in as little as 12 hours.
To avoid it I'm meticulous about getting bone dry under my belly and breast after a shower. Sweat is a bigger cause than left over moisture so on sweaty days I clean up with pre moisened wipes during the day.
Hope this helps.
I have been putting penatin cream behind my knees and it really helps clear up the redness and soreness. The only trouble is, I now have what looks like scarring behind my knees.
I still have a lot of weight to lose - but now I know I sure won't be able to wear shorts, or skirts this summer!
