Doctor can evaluate: If a new rash has not resolved with some over-the-counter Hydrocortisone cream and some moisturizer, a dermatologist or a primary care doctor can re-examine the rash. Common eczema should get better with cortisone, so if symptoms persist, the doctor(s) can check to see if it is a more serious type of rash, and also look for signs of skin infection (such as a fungus). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
