BrownB, it might be that you have contact dermatitis caused by something like your belt buckle or the button in your pants. Usually this is the result of a sensitivity to the nickel used in these products. The treatment would be to use a cortisone cream, but the best would be to first have the diagnosis confirmed by your doctor. Good luck.
