Red, Circular, Crusty, Swollen Dog Skin Rashes

Aprox 3 days ago I noticed a rash on my dog's belly. The location of spots are in his groin 1 on each side of sheath and correlate with 1 on each inside haunch/thigh. The spots on each side would be touching correlating sheath spots if he were lying down with back legs under him. In appearance they are circular, reddened, slightly swollen, crusty in places, NO hair loss and do not seem to itch or bother him at this time.
My English Bulldog is 3 years old. History: He is neutered and vaccinated. He lives with 2 adults, 2 teens and 1 other English Bulldog that is 1 year old.
He is an indoor dog and though we have a fenced back yard he rarely goes out unless accompanied by me or my husband, mostly to use the bathroom. He usually goes to his own crate if no one is home but is free to roam house. He sleeps in his crate at night.
He had alopecia and symmetrical hair loss on his sides when he was aprox 1 1/2 years that has gone away slowly with use of melatonin at night. He is prone to R ear infection if I do not clean his ears aprox 4-6 weeks. Other than that he does not any health concerns.
