Hello, Rash in the belly button area is usually due to infections chied ones being fungal infection. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.You can consult a pharmacist and get any cream or lotion containing these ingredients. Some of them are Lamisil, Monistat derm, Mycelex, and NizoralYou can also use selsun shampoo on these white patches.
I have a rash red firery rash inside my bellybutton then around the outside on the surronding skin I have small little red bumps all around it and it is all very itchy. What do you think this could be? And what should I try on it? I tried hydrocortizone and it didnt work.
My sister kept getting a rash around her belly button also. When she went to the dermatologist it was determined that she was allergic to the metal button on her pants.
I've had my belly button pierced for 12 years and out of the blue it becomes infected with blisters in and around my belly button. It's painful and itchy. Could it be possible to get an infection from the piercing after 12 years or is this something that has nothing to do with that and how long should i wait before seeing a doctor realistically (i have no insurance/money and can't just run out to the doctor immediately) Any info would help. Thanks!
I am itchy in my armpits, inside of my elbows, around my groin, backs of my knees and even sometimes in and around my belly button. I have noticed a rash on the inside of my elbows and a bit of a rash in my armpits. Any ideas what it could be or what is causing it. Ive had a look at certain rashes for more severe diseases such as meningitis and im pretty sure it isnt something like that.
stinky belly button can result from an imbalance in body chemistry. try cleansing your belly button with a q-tip dipped in tea tree oil twice a day for a week... it's great for clearing up bacteria and fungus and will likely resolve it. good luck!
at first i felt kinda sting when i was washing dishes (i work as a dish washer at a restaurant), then when i off work i saw some rash around my belly button area. i put some lotion i bought from walgreen and after a couple days it seems getting a lot better, but then again on tuesday (2 days ago from today) it started to occur again, but it wasnt as itchy and sting like i first had it. so what kinda problem do i exactly have here?
I'm not sure how long it's been, but I think it was a couple or so weeks ago when I noticed that I was getting a rash on the rim of my belly button, and a little in my actual belly button. After some time it spread to the skin around my belly button, and recently, it spread even further. I'm starting to get worried. I thought it was nothing and that it would go away eventually, but im starting to think it may be something troublesome.
around the head of my penis, and in my belly button. My belly button actually had a grey like crust inside. I was prescribed Fluconazole 100mg for a yeast infection (Thrush).. After a week, it appears as if it is getting better (Penis). Red spots going away, no pain during an erection etc. I am now getting what appears to be a itchy rash on the base of my palms, wrists, chest, and belly button area.
Next day had throat ulcer at back of throat, infact, sore throat started 4 hours after encounter. Now, 5 days after exposure I have a red rash about 1 inch below my belly button, a cluster of about 20-30 tiny little red pin prick spots, not itchy or sore, and a few one or two scattered around towards by testes. No discharge or other symptoms, worried sick its some form of STD or syphilis, but, surely, 5 days post exposure would be far too soon for a rash to appear if at all?
I get the same itchy rash just below my belly button when i am having a flare up. I was going to ask the doc about it as i am now thinking i may have lymes disease or some other illness.
I am experiencing a similar issue. I noticed a rash breaking out on my hand yesterday, it stings a bit and is very itchy, there are now dark blue almost black bruises within this rash and my hand is swelling. It is so weird, I work in a hospital and nobody had any idea as to what it was.
Couple days later it went away. Month later a rash appeared with no symptoms around his belly button. It has now been about 3 months and how he has a rash on his arm. His rash looks like little red- brown pin needles marks that do not itch,have no certain form. They look like a hickey or almost look like a bruise when it starts to go away. No changes to his diet, laundry detergent.ect.... Any clue?
I have a stubborn rash that has been resistant to anti fungus creams and also not helped by hydrocortisone cream. The really odd characteristic is that if I push on the side of the belly button where the rash exists, I get pain in the inside of my penis. It does not hurt through the abdomin. Just very much in the inside of the penis. My GP could not provide a guess as to the reason. Does anyone have a suggestion for clearing up the rash?
Hi, I had a tubal ligation done almost 3 weeks ago. But I still have a slight itchy rash around my belly button. It's very annoying. I don't have a fever, nothing hurts, just the itchy rash. It's not spreading, but it's not going away either. I showed my dr. last week and she put me on antiobiotics for a few days and also said it could be a yeast infection and told me to take 1 diflucan for yeast infection and put some monostat cream on it as well and cover it up.
So I have a couple of questions: 3 months ago I got this itchy rash between my groin and scrotum which i researched and thought was jock itch. I've been treating it with a cream for about 2 months but it hasn't subsided, and in fact seems to have started to spread to the other side. A couple days ago I started to get this itchyish red spots starting about 2-3 inches below my belly button and spreading down to the base of penis.
First... I am FED UP. Second if this seems a little long PLEASE do not turn away. My Doctors and Dermatologist, ER, Vets, Pre-Vet students, family and friends anyone I have asked, have no idea what I have. I have this rash which covers most of my skin from head to toe. It is extremely itchy. And swells like i have silicone injections under my skin.
My friend had the pregnancy rash.
Then i noticed small little red pimple like rash around my ankle also itchy if touched, but my foot was the worst, now it seems to be spreading, some on my wrist, around my belly button, on my back, a couple on my breast, some here and there on my legs, around my private area, and i think a couple in my mouth. I have searched thru some photo galleries but do not see anything similar. What can it be?
Raised rash on torso, front only. Not itchy. Raised, rough, small splotches, irregular shapes. Stayed more than a month. Tried benadryl, polysporin, and now an antifungal. Just left home and started new job, don't have doc here yet. Tested negative for Lyme Disease antibodies (had test day I left home).
I had a sore throat for a few days about a week ago, then when I got better, I started getting small, itchy, skin colored raised bumps on the inside of my elbows and inner forearms, anterior shoulders, chest, around my belly button, and occasionally inner thighs. Itching the bumps aggravates them, causing them to puff up a bit, and (it appears) causes more bumps to appear. Around the bumps my skin gets red.
They come and go........(my rash is being managed, but that can really drive ya nuts!!!!) So do not worry about the mess in your house.....it is really tough and easy to get "blue" about the mess.......Look at it and love it.....it will get done........"baby steps" When you need to rest....rest......I feel like I am rambling.....Sorry.... I really enjoy reading all of your input and comments....this site is GREAT....and you are all so honest and up front about everything..
I find this incredibly embarrassing, but since I have been having sex with my (now) wife for the past 2 years, I've struggled with this horribly itchy rash on one side of my scrotum, down through my crotch, into the buttocks crack and around the anus. On the scrotum, it's raised/red and itchy as can be. Almost reflexively, I scratch the itches when no one is around. It tends to have a white substance covering it that I try to clean off.
I had a dr appt last week and all was well. I have developed some pregnancy rash on my belly...yay...lol. Not harmful to the baby but itchy and bothersome. I go for a fetal echo next Wed just to make sure everything is good with the baby's heart. Feeling the baby kick a lot more so I've been happy about that. Hope everyone continues to do well...take care all!!
Mostly in the winter. Whe I first got the rash it started around my belly button then the small of my back. Then it went to my shins, head, bra line and creases in my belly. I only weigh 125 and am 5 foot 6 inches tall. The only thing that took it away was Prednisone but it came back much worse as most things do when after stopping Prednisone. I used Cortisteriods for years and topical Benadryl with little relief. I started using cold packs to stop the itch and elevation.
above my belly button and below my breasts. It looks more like a very faint rash, no raised bumps, almost blotchy, but itchy!! I put some aloe on it. Related? I never get rashes until all this happened. I have changed my body lotion from neutrogena (free of dyes and perfumes) to a more natural lotion just recently. I use Tide laundry detergent mostly. I switch my hair and face products regularly. I don't know of any food allergies.
I was going to ask the same thing....how itchy are you? I've had a few times where I've been really itchy beside my belly button....I know skin stretching can be itchy and if you keep it nice and lotioned up then it really helps...those few days I had that, I made sure I caked on the lotion and many times a day. But yes, keep an eye out for an actual rash.
stretchmarks on my chest and boobs since they've gotten so huge, I also rubbed it on my belly. Anyway after a couple of days I developed a severe rash on my chest and it was sooo itchy, my belly was fine. But since I stopped it, it went away. Call your Doctor but also try to see if there's anything different that you have been doing that may be causing this and it could be a simple as changing the lotion.
