Sounds fungal: Would need more background information as there are several potential causes for rash such as this. However, ruling out fungal infection is at top of list. 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

If the rash is spreading you should probably see a Dermatologist. ...Read more

Antifungal: It is difficult to tell the cause of a rash without seeing it but a common type of rash that is itchy is a yeast or fungal rash. I would first try an over the counter yeast treatment like lamisil (terbinafine) cream (terbinifine). It can take several weeks applying the cream bid to get rid of the rash. If this does not work then I suggest seeing your doctor for an exam. ...Read more

Rash from scratching: I suspect that the rash (at least in part) is probably from your scratching that area which itches you. So have you tried either covering it to make it more difficult to scratch, put some moisturizing cream on to tone down the itch, or something over the counter such as Bacteen which has a temporary cooling/numbning effect? Your doctor can prescribe more potent creams to get you to not scratch it ...Read more

Contact dermatitis?: If it isn't fungus, then it is a form of dermatitis, a skin inflammation.

I have some type of rash on the bottom of my foot in the middle and its been there for years now. It itches at times and peels. What could it be?
Years is a long time: With the medical conditions you report I would have thought you would have shown this to one of your doctors by now. Have your family doctor take a look and get it taken care of. It could be eczema, tinea or a callus... thyroid problems can cause skin changes. Or it may be some type of growth. Regardless if it was going to hurt you it would have already so I wouldn't be too worried about it. ...Read more

Exam needed: If the discolored lesion is only days old, it could have been an insect bite with some leakage of blood under the skin. The associated itching makes this more likely but the lesion would clear after 10 days or so. Cortisone type ointment would relieve the itch. If this lesion has been present for weeks it's best to have it examined by your physician or dermatologist. ...Read more

Not being too rash..: There is no doubt, the possibility of a fungal infection or athlete's foot. But because of the unique location, especially on both feet, It could also have something to do with a contact type dermatitis. Explore the possibility of shoes, sandals or even places where your bare foot, especially your arch area, may have been resting. To remove all doubt, visit with a Healthtap dermatologist. ...Read more

Rash: This may have been an insect bite with an allergic response or an area of contact dermatitis from something that touched your skin.

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your symptoms. A cut which has remained open and is oozing with an itchy rash around it might be infected. When did you have your last tenatus shot? I am answering this five days after you wrote in. If it is still problematic, recommend that you get it assessed. Heat, redness, swelling, red streaks, pus, fever can all be signs of an infection. Check to see if you need to get you tenatus updated. Take care. ...Read more

I have this irritation on my labia majora and my inner leg I got it from my husband after sex, little white ash-e look and it itches like a rash?
Get checked: The only way to know what this is is to be examined by your doctor. It sounds more like a yeast infection of the skin and surrounding area than something that would be passed during sex. Without an exam there is no way to know. If an over the counter yeast medication solves the problem then most likely that's all it was. Schedule a visit. ...Read more
