Try OTC ointment: A new rash in that area could be from a number of things. I would start with cleansing the area and applying an otc ointment such as hydrocortisone. If you're having more serious symptoms, that would be a more appropriate indication to go to the emergency room. If it's not that serious and doesn't respond otc ointment, we might try a local urgent care. Best wishes. ...Read more

Folliculitis: It sounds as though it could be a folliculitis which is an inflammation around the hair follicles. They're little red bumps which may or may not be itchy. Usually a salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide wash will take care of it. It can also be a form of eczema which can be aggravated by salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. It's probably best to see a dermatologist. ...Read more

Itching with no rash: The list of conditions that could cause itch without rash is long, like thyroid problems, liver or kidney disease, even malignancies among others. Need a complete workup including a chest xray, urinalysis and stool exam for ova and parasites x 3. Also small red bumps that come and go could be a type of urticaria (hives) that is very itchy. Please see your doctor right away for proper diagnosis. ...Read more
