The title of my post pretty much says it all. I've had this off and on for about two weeks. It initially started on a hot day when I was at my desk essentially all day at work and was kind of sweaty/hot. Rash is initially itchy but becomes sore at some points, especially when I sit in one spot for prolonged periods of time. Also it gets quite irritated after I work out at the gym, but then "cools off" after I get home and take a cold shower. No puss or anything like that, but lots of pink/red pimple type things on my backside. I'm a 29 yr old male in pretty good shape/health if that matters. And pretty freaked out at the moment! Any info would help. Thanks!
well im no doctor but it sounds like good old sweat/heat rash to me,im 36 and ive had psoriasis since i was 19,bad periods & not so bad,i get scaley spots in the same place as yours and although heat/sweat can intensify them they never really look like pimples,more like lots of little roundish rashes with white scaley skin.
I think if you just try to keep that area as dry and sweat free as you can you may see improvement,i always find a mild non perfumed (johnsons baby powder) talc helps protect against sweating,hope this mite help.
