skin rash

when I was in a hot, humid climate recently (New Orleans), I noticed, at night, that the whole back of my lower legs were covered with a huge red area which felt warm but didn't itch or hurt. I bought some cortizone10 cream and it disappeared within a few day. After a month of so, the shin flaked off when rubbed. What caused this outbreak?

Hi, welcome to the forum, your symptoms are suggestive of irritant dermatitis. It seems secondary to the garments you wear and sweating will worsen the condition.

Firstly, you need to get investigated for possibility of allergen (due to clothes, dye or other allergen where you work).

- White petrolatum or Zinc oxide cream can be used which acts as protective barrier.
- Use of powders such as cornstarch or talcum powder is also helpful.
- Low potency topical glucocorticoids and oral anti histaminic against prescription can be helpful.

The affected skin flakes off over a time this can be secondary to steroid treatment. I suggest you to consult dermatologist to rule out psoriasis. Take care and regards.
