Maybe, can't say: Dermatology diagnoses are typically made visually. Then re-examined, or biopsied and looked via microscope, often with special stains, then blood tests are drawn. Hives, bites, viral rashes, contact allergy, medication allergy, too many possibilities here; get seen by provider. Use antihistamines first, low dose topicsl steroids. Think about possible exposure: plants, cosmetics, adhesives, etc. ...Read more

Rash: It is almost impossible for us here on health tap to tell what the rash is because we can't see it. Since we don't know if it is fungal, putting an anti fungal on it is not wise. Your best bet is to go to the doctor and get specific treatment for this rash. ...Read more
