Exanthems (= rashes): Such as yours are often impossible to diagnose with out the MD having the advantage of " laying eyes on it." Photos of good resolution can help but won't supplant good clinical evaluation. There are so many possibilities it wouldn't help anything to try to narrow down with such little information. On the other hand, a good dermatologist usually can nail it in a few minutes in person. ...Read more

Yeast infection plus burning, tingling in legs (no rash), two small pimple like bumps (1 near groin, 1 on butt) 1 on groin went away already. Related?
Yeast/pimples: Probably NOT. Vaginal yeast infections are exactly that - vaginal. It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more

They have the best chance to help your concern. ...Read more
