BURNING, ITCHING++++: I DO NOT KNOW HOW LONG. IF IT IS NOT A RINGWORN (FUNGUS) INFECTION, FLUCONAZOLE WILL NOT WORK! YOU SHOULD FIND A DERMATOLOGIST SOON. IT MIGHT BE SHINGLES, BUT WITHOUT A DECENT HISTORY, THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL. BEST LUCK. ...Read more

Potentially: If the inflammation of your skin if due to superficial fungal infection, you should see response with anti fungal treatments you are on.

Rash: You could try medicine for fungus infection. This could be candida, yeast infection. Trying the creams women use for yeast infections or athlete's foot creams may help until you can get to see the doctor for a real diagnosis. If you have a yeast infection on the skin, the cortisone may even make it worse. Try to keep the areas cool and dry. ...Read more

Contact allergy: A contact dermatitis is caused by an allergic reaction in the skin from touching something, in this case, vegetables. I doubt that she is allergic to all vegetables. You can test her allergy by placing many tiny pieces of vegetables on the skin of her forearm, and make a diagram on a piece of paper to label what you have done. She will get a itchy rash at the one she is allergic to. ...Read more
