Hello and hope you are doing well.

The rash could be due to contact dermatitis, that is exposure to an irritant like a chemical or metal or anything you are allergic to like the belt, it can cause rash. It could also be due to scabies, impetigo or sometimes due to herpes zoster or chicken pox. But to exactly pinpoint the pathology you will need to consult your  primary care physician who will examine you and may ask for blood tests. If the need arises he may refer you to a dermatologist.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
