Take the picture you posted and text or email it to your Equine vet. Nothing gets their attention faster than a picture or video:)
For now get some of the WalMart brand diaper rash PASTE. It says 40% zinc oxide on the box. Until you can get to Walmart, any antibiotic ointment in your cupboard will help.
Whether that is sunburn, bacterial or fungal, the diaper rash cream won't hurt, will help reduce itching and inflammation and will also keep the flies off.
Also, if you can crane your neck upside down to look at her belly line, check for any raw spots there. If not, rub your hand down her belly line to feel for them. Believe me, if you come upon a raw spot you will feel it. Then be sure to tell the vet she has sweet itch in her belly:)
