Am being treated for bulging disc pressing on sciatic nerve pain shoots back to front then down inner thigh to knee can this cause rash on inner thigh?

Unusual: It would be unusual for a disk to create a sciatic nerve neuropathy, but more of a root problem, which seems to correlate to your symptoms more. However, a rash would be unusual to be caused by such a nerve problem. Please see your physician to be sure it is assessed and evaluated.
