Need more info: You have come to the right place. Unfortunately rashes are difficult if impossible to diagnose without seeing. It is not clear where these are either. This type of rash can be many things. I suggest setting up a consult with one of HealthTap doctors where you can discuss it in more detail and upload photos. ...Read more
