I have had a red itchy dry somewhat scaly rash on my left hip/buttock area for nearly 3 months now. It started out as a small bright red splotch, but has been getting bigger. I am scheduled for a pelvic exam next week and am planning on getting it checked out, but I am afraid it might be some sort of STD? I think I have a related small rash on my left thigh that has been present for about the same amount of time. Any suggestions of what this might be would be great.
The only recent risk factor was a guy accidentally bumping into me in the locker room at a gym about 4 1/2 weeks ago(we were both naked) - but I'm not at all sure his genitals contacted my skin at all, (I think it was just his stomach area),plus, he bumped into me on the other side of my buttocks, not where the rash is now. I've read that herpes can occur on the buttocks, and much of the info on the net says that herpes can look different from the classic thin-walled blisters.
I should know by the end of next week. I have all the symptoms, itchy pimply rash, sore in buttocks area, etc. I also just met somebody that I fell the potential for a relationship and he made a comment last week how deathly afraid he is of getting an STD and that is why he doesnt have multiple partners or is very selective when looking for a women to have a elationship with... this all adds to my frustration...
HI doc, For the last 3-5 months had a reocurring rash on the upper portion of my right buttock near base of spine( maybe 2-3 times over 3 mos). Starts out as a raised inflammed red circle-itchy with what seems to be either small pinhead fluid-filled blister sometimes within the inflammed area.
I have round purple bruise like area sometimes itchy on my buttock..
my 2 year old has a small (1 pence size) red circular rash on his buttock, its a little raised and disappears with pressure it was not there yesterday. what can it be?
Hi, This could be sweat dermatitis most probably complicated by friction, eczema or bacterial skin infection or heat rash. Try to avoid sweat accumulation at the sites and use a powder. Keep the area clean and wear lose, comfortable clothes. Since when have you noticed the lesion? You could take oral antihistamine medications for the itching and apply calamine lotion at the site.
dont waste any more time or money on a misdiagnosis.mmmm if you are getting the rash all over it sounds like a reaction. dont worry that your girlfriend doesnt have the same reaction - could it not be that your body is different in the way it reacts to chemicals/environment/vitamins/food stuffs................

My friend came down with a high fever one day and the next day five blisters appeared on his buttock area. What could this be a cause of? He told me that it was not the first time that a blister had appeared on that area but it wasn't that bad. Could this be some sort of STD?
Just to let you know I am experiencing the same symptoms (itchy small bumpy rash areas on my chest, back and lower torso) and I went to the doctors and was diagnosed with Pityriasis Rosea. There is a ton of information on it on the web. It basically has no cause (not caused by medicine, stress, food, etc) and last for about a month. It disappears on its own eventually. Hope this helps your problems!
When he had blisters on his back due to the rash, we put tea tree oil on them. I have also heard people say that pressing the itchy area up against a cold surface, stepping outside, standing in front of a fan, and putting ice on it helps. If I remember correctly from your previous posts, you are almost finished with the Incivek. Hopefully the rash will improve when you're done with that med.
I agree with the fungal specialist that a culture of Candida albicans doesn't mean much by itself. The fact that it took so long and so much therapy to clear up strongly suggests that yeast (Candida) wasn't the main problem. You ask what you have now. Yet the symptoms you say you now have are: "To this day, I tend to have slight facial outbreaks on the flares of my nose, the crease of my chin, and the left side of my face.
Also apply calamine lotion on the skin that has already chafed. If the symptoms are sever then please apply a mild steroid cream on the rash. 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.
That same night new reddish clusters with reddish bumps appeared on my inner tighs and buttock area, both are inflamed and extremely itchy on and off. The itchy bumps are random in shapes (no puss, no water content, no blister), each bump is hard and it does not contain any liquid... and NO- the bumps don't have uniformed patterns like "chicken skin" (or Keratosis Pilaris).

I have an itchy red rash inside my buttock cheeks. On one side it looks circular and isn't itchy. The other side feels like I have hives. A while back I had an itchy elliptical hive like raised spot on my vulva. I put Bacitracin on it. Then some hydrocortisone. It disappeared within a day or so. Anyone have any idea of what I have. I went to my MD about the raised hive spot; but by the time I got there, it was just about gone.
I had itchy rash between buttocks and cracking skin in vaginal area. OB/GYN prescribe premarin cream for topical use. It stopped the cracking skin and eased the itching. However, the anal stuff has not gone away. The cream temporarily ease the itching and now have spots on my buttock. The spots dont itch just the anal area and the skin in my anal area has gotten really dark. Could this be dermotological or parasitic? Help!!!!
Hello, This itchy red rash on triceps and neck which is spreading can be due to viral infection as viral infections are itchy and spread on the whole body. I suggest your boyfriend to get an evaluation done from a dermatologist. For such itching oral antihistamine, such as Benadryl or Claritin can be used. If the symptoms persist then get an evaluation done from a dermatologist as topical and oral steroids may be needed after confirming the diagnosis.
The rash covers most of my buttocks, but the larger papules and patches occur in different places and keep appearing over a couple of weeks. The rash is quite itchy and burns - especially before the rash appears and even for a few days after. I suffer from dry skin on my vulva around this time as well - the skin is always papery and sometimes this flakes (in areas where my clothing rubs).

Hi I am a healthy 26 year old woman. About three months ago, I had an itchy rash on my chest area, shoulders and back. My doctor diagnosed it as pityariasis. I had a biopsy of the rash and it showed that it could be a type of dermatitis or something viral. I took a medrol dose pack to get ride of the rash along with some ointment. About a week or two later, I developed hives on my back. They were flat and slightly raised.
Some of it is also on my upper buttock. I went to the dematologist yesterday. I have had the rash on and off since the beginning of the year. It itches. It gets better and then comes back. The dermatologist said he had no diagnosis. He said he was leaning towards eczema, but then said it could be some sort of cancer from within and he did a biopsy. I am 73. I have no other symtoms. No fevers, no night sweats, no weight loss, no loss of appetite.
Im a 37 year old male with a itchy rash that started out between the fold where the scrotum meets the inner thigh. Now the rash has spread to both inner thighs, below my navel and buttock areas.The rash is dark in color and very itchy especially at night. Is there anything i can use otc or is it better to find a dermatologist? This rash started about six months ago and has not gotten better.
