Otherwise might be coming down with some Viral infection. Take some Motrim and rest and if no better in 2-4 days or if getting worse see your PCP. ...Read more

Rash on hips: Eczema is commonly seen on hips particularly in cold weather. Eczema is red/pink and scaly and can be very itchy. If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help.
