Hello and welcome,

I appreciate your concern,

Without seeing the lesion for myself and examining the area,it's very difficult to say what it could be for sure,but based on your description,it's either a fungal infection or some kind of dermatitis.If it's red,itchy and full of pimples like a rash then it's most probably dermatitis.However if it's dry,itchy and scaly the most probably it's some kind of topical fungal infection.

If you are using anything unusual or new on your skin like cosmetics,lotions,moisturisers or a different face wash, body wash or shampoo,stop immediately as it can be contact dermatitis and anything coming in contact with skin can cause it.

Also you can use calamine lotion over it for a day or two to see it's effect on the lesion.If it subsides then it most probably was allergy but if it gets worse or stays the same then you should visit your dermatologist at the earliest opportunity for a physical exam of the area to get it treated as soon as possible.

I hope this is helpful,

Wishing you the best of health.
