Dermatitis: Since you had a cast, this rash could be due to irritation or mild reaction- contact dermatitis. Keep it dry and clean. If it fails to resolve or if it becomes red, painful, warm or inflamed, please contact your healthcare provider.

Rhinitis: Your symptoms sound concerning for rhinitis. It is due to nasal inflammation which can happen due to mold, mildew, viruses, dust, dust mites, dander, pollen that can circulate in your immediate environment once air-conditioning is turned on. Having a HEPA filter and regularly performing maintenance can help. Also, maintaining optimal humidity would help. Consider certified service of your AC unit.

Post-colectomy : I would be concerned about inflammation/ irritation of the pouch. I would recommend that you must be evaluated by the gastroenterologist as soon as possible.
