May be fungus/yeast: It is very difficult to diagnose any kind of rash in genital area without looking at it. My guess is that it is a fungus or yeast infection. Try any antifungal like Monistat-derm. Follow the directions of using it properly and if not better in a week, see a Dermatologist if you can or see a family doctor. ...Read more

You have very sensitive skin and may need to consider alternative options for hair removal such as Laser Hair removal. If changing razor, soaps and moisturizers is not helpful, please consult a dermatologist. ...Read more

Prickly itchy rash shows raised bumps, when scratch swell into raised strips. Lasts few mins. Affects diff area of body/hair & diff time. No reason.

Dermatographism: If your rash is a flat one and scratching it causing raised strip, you have dermatographism meaning that your skin is oversensitive. If it is bothersome, taking an otc antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine) will likely control it. Else it is not a major health issue. As always, mention this to your doctor when you see him/her next time. ...Read more

Infected gland: There are numerous glands at the vaginal entrance. These glands secrete fluid that helps lubricate the vagina. Sometimes the openings of these glands become obstructed, causing fluid to back up into the gland. At times, the fluid within the cyst may become infected. See your doctor to get it drained if needed and treated. ...Read more

Allergic reaction: Usually rashes on the top of your feet are casued by some type of allergic reaction or contact dermatits. With your lower legs involved i would rule out edema/swelling as an issue as well. Your socks or shoes could be creating the rash on your feet more so if they got wet while wearing them or if you have changed soaps or detergents. If the rash persists or returns get examined by a doctor. ...Read more

If former, no need for antibiotics. Need testing to determine one from other. Watch closely for any change in typical activity & behavior. Family doc can help determine if needs emergent/urgent care eg difficulty swallowing etc ...Read more
