Rash: You have a fair description of the rash but it's impossible to say for sure without looking at a rash. Sometimes even further testing is needed. Try including a picture with your next post. Have your PCP or dermatologist have a look. Best of luck.

I have skin discoloration and swelling on my right shin. It is red and honeycomb shaped. There has been no trauma or pain. Blood and x-rays normal.?

Skin condition: There are many different skin conditions that could cause this from dermatitis/eczema, psorisis, or something more serious. Depends on how long it has been there, other symtoms like itching or pain or if it bleeds or drains any. A picture would help. You may need it biopsied to find out specifically what is causing it. You could try topical hydrocortisone cream for a short period if it helps.

Should I use a different detergent if my baby keeps getting rashes on her leg?

Should I use a different detergent if my baby keeps getting rashes on her leg?

Usually won't matter: Recurrent rashes on the arms and legs of babies are often eczema, which appears as reddened, rough, dry skin areas. 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).

Have it checked: This could be a number of things and hard to know what it is without looking at it. Most commonly, this could be reaction to something (like an allergy) or infection that may need to be treated. I suggest you see your doctor soon to have it checked out properly.

Got rashes on the insides of both of my legs?

Got rashes on the insides of both of my legs?

Lots of rash causes: Mary, your question is pretty broad. It would be helpful to know if the rash begins in the groin or is midway down inner thighs. It is also helpful to know if the rash is warm and tender. The most common causes of a rash where skin might rub against itself is irritation. For an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan please see a general practitioner or dermatologist.

I've rashes especially on butt n my legs since a year ago. I've applied different medicine since then but none works. What could this be?

Groin Rash: The area between the buttocks and the upper inner thighs, is warm and prone to friction rubbing. It is a common place for a fungal infection, called dermatophytes, and also yeast infections. Other kinds of rashes can also affect these areas, like psoriasis, and dermatitis. A year is a long time, and so it may be best to see a skin doctor, who can make the diagnosis and prescribe the right medicines.
