Try OTC ointment: A new rash in that area could be from a number of things. I would start with cleansing the area and applying an otc ointment such as hydrocortisone. If you're having more serious symptoms, that would be a more appropriate indication to go to the emergency room. If it's not that serious and doesn't respond otc ointment, we might try a local urgent care. Best wishes.

Not ER, but see Dr.: There are several possibilities such shingles, a minor bacterial infection, or contact allergy. A health care provider taking a medical history and examining the rash would likely be able to make the diagnosis and recommend treatment, if necessary. Unless you're very ill, or it's bothering you very much, i don't think a visit to the er will be necessary; but would see your own dr. Or urgent care.
