It could be connected to your sweating problem and could be the first signs of something more serious. It may be worthwhile speaking to your GP.

Tim, the following is an exert from:

http://www.excessivesweating.org

"excessive sweat may make the skin more irritated or chapped and can help lead to problems such as fungal infection (athlete's foot) or a rash"

It also has advice on what to do if you sweat excessively.

The reason I tend to advise people to talk to their GP for anything that doesn't have an immediate or simple explanation is due to the experience with my brother. The first signs that something was wrong was the excessive sweating, although we didn't actually do anything until he had collapsed a few times and fallen off his bike while racing, for no apparent reason.
