a little concerned

My dd has what looks like chafing on the inside of her arm near her elbows. and on her tummy well more on her sides...? what could be causing this?? I thought it may be where her arms are by her side at night because she wont go to sleep unless we swaddle her with her arm in the blanket....???? i just dont know. could it be a rash instead...? its red, dry and flaky....but doesnt seem to be causing pain...?
