Can anyone tell me what this rash is ? ?

My niece has had this red spot on her inner thigh 

 for years, it’s grown and just recently started to “burn her” Sheba’s also noticed two more shoots starting on her other leg.  moisturizes constantly so we ruled out dry skin.

    Rashes can be very difficult to diagnose even for experts, so just looking at a photo is only a guess.  That's unusually severe inflammation, which might make it even less certain what this might be. The chronic history and general pattern look like atopic dermatitis, but the cherry red color is not typical.  So, maybe she has had atopic dermatitis for a while but now also has some sort of secondary skin infection.  It would be wise to take her to an urgent care clinic or primary care doc if you can get an appointment in the next few days.  That cherry red color is worrisome and could indicate either cellulitis or erysipelas - risky infections that spread in the skin.
