There are a few possibilities. It may actually be a dermatitis or an eczema with some post inflammatory hyperpigmentation of the skin underneath the area of inflammation.
It may also be something such as psoriasis or a fungal skin infection (ringworm).
I would suggest you have your doctor take a look at this. With rashes, a visual diagnosis is really the best way get answers.
