Rash: It may be molluscum contagiosum. Send a picture or show your doctor. This is caused by a virus and can be present for months. Keep the area clean and give Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night for itching. All the best.

Pityriasis Rosea?: This may be pityriasis rosea or tinea versacolot. Selsun blue shampoo may be helpful for treating this. As far as itching Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will help with that also. If this does not improve then probably you should see a physician or dermatologist.
