You could possibly have prickly heat (raised little pimples) and very itchy do to sweating. The best solution for that is corn starch. Hope it works for you.

Dear lionfishman,

If this has been going on for a couple of weeks, it is time to have your condition evaluated. It is impossible to make a diagnosis based only on a description. Your doctor needs to see the affected area and know what methods you have tried to use to improve your condition.
