Have been treating entire body for fungal infection with coconut oil rash gone skin dry and flaky now still itches really bad possible I'd reaction? Symmetrical rash started on torso spread to arms and legs has reached ankles still extremely itchy on breas

Coconut oil has good antimicrobial properties and may have helped calm an inflammatory reaction to the infection, but does not seem to have completed the task. Would see a physician to confirm and take antifungal medication. ...Read more

Bad case of butt and thigh rash: is it contact dermatitis from an allergy to something in my running shorts or is it a bacterial or fungal infection?

Greetings I often get this flea infection get some rashes around my thigh or leg I use a ointment get relief but it appears any permanent solution?

Avoid fleas: The question is a little hard to understand, but seems as though if you get flea bites, you get an infection. Obviously avoiding the causing agent (or bug in this case) is the permanent solution. Using some kind of flea repellent, treating rugs, clothes and having pets flea free are all components of making this happen. ...Read more

Consult with a vascular surgeon may be helpful. ...Read more

On severe eczema areas, the skin will get tiny cracks that ooze moisture. Changing the laundry detergent usually doesn't make a difference in the rash, but parents can try using no detergent for 2-3 weeks and see if the rash resolves (just wash the laundry with hot or warm water). ...Read more
