My 15 month old has red flaky skin patches behind his knees, is this from sweating? He is a little on the chubby side. What can I do for this?

Avoid using soap; keep the area clean by sponging and use a baby powder to keep the area dry.
Consult a specialist to diagnose the exact cause for these flaky patches as these can be due to sweating, plaque psoriasis, eczema or other skin conditions. Treatment will follow after knowing the exact cause.
