There : There are many possible source of your "rash". Allergic reaction: could you be sensitive to the material or elastic in a swimsuit, panties, shorts or pants? If so, an antihistimene tablet would help (benadryl, claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec) yeast: typically red with well defined borders, and a hazy white surface. May or may not have clumpy-white discharge. You can try any of the yeast preparations. Irritant: extremely itchy and red. Try an anti-itch cream (outside only).

If you think the gel led to the rash, then stop the gel and try a steroid cream. If the rash preceded the medicine, then consider a trial of an anti fungal cream or a visit to your doctor. ...Read more
