Red scaling rash: Red scaling rashes generally fall into the category of "eczematous", meaning "like eczema". Eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, allergic or irritant contact dermatitis, and some bacterial and fungal infections fall into this category. Red scaling rashes are often itchy and can be oozing and uncomfortable.
