Could be a number of things. Would be glad to help if you can upload some pictures.
Well, the pictures are of my buttocks, is that acceptable?
You can upload them online on my website www.onlineskinspecialist.com
I cropped the pictures down and uploaded them on my profile page. Thank you for being concerned.
Thanks. Not great quality pics. Can only make out scratch marks and a bit of inflammation thereoff. I wonder if you had bites of some sort. Do you have any pets at home?
Unlikely to be a STD. Suggest trying a good oily moisturiser and hydrocortisone ointment in the first instance. However hydrocortisone is quite a weak steroid and ideally you would need a potent strength steroid like betnovate.
It can be due to moisture(due to sweating or frequent washing), the abrasion caused by clothing,the pressure of sitting, chemical irritants like laundry soaps, colognes and scented toilet paper,certain food irritants, infections like pinworms and skin problems such as psoriasis, seborrhea and eczema. Try an over-the-counter (OTC) cream or ointment containing hydrocortisone (Cortaid, Preparation H),but it is to be applied sparingly to the affected area. A protective ointment that contains zinc oxide (Desitin, Balmex) also may help. If your symptoms are worse at night, please take an antihistamine like benadryl to reduce itching until topical treatments take effect.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
My husband has a rash that itches on his buttocks, thighs, and on his shoulders and back. Previously, it was on his groins and chest. We have been to dermatologist three times and our primary care with multiple ointments and predinosone. It may leave for a few days and then it is back again. What can we do?
I have had what sounds like the same skin irritation. It comes back in the almost exact same place every time, but mine seems to appear when I have a respiratory infection or sinus trouble. It is worrisome and would like to know what it is. Have you found any helpful information or answers?
