I have a rash on my buttock...red, itchy and a few pustules...I have a picture - is there any way you could look at it and tell me what it might be?

No good way

Itching
It is difficult to tell what may be causing your problem since the most important part of making a diagnosis is getting a good history. For example, were you exposed to an environment full of insects prior to the rash? Did the pustules occur at the sites where you had scratched ? You need to see a doctor to sort this out.

Dr. Michael E. Ein answered:

Rash starts with white pustule, evolves into itchy cigarette burn style rash. had it for years on back and legs?

Sounds like Impetigo

Leg
This sounds like Impetigo, a bacterial infection of the skin caused by Staphylococcus aureus or Streptococcus pyogenes. Have your doctor culture a lesion and inside your nose. If a culture is positive topical treatment and decolonization would be indicated.

I'm 23 weeks pregnant with my fifth child. I have an itchy red rash on my buttocks. Red raised, no blisters or pustules. What should I do?

Try hydrocortisone

Rash
It the rash looks like an even red throughout then it is most likely in the eczema family and 2.5% hydrocortisone cream should help. If the rash appears to be clearing in the middle then you may have a fungal infection so I would rub lamisil cream into rash with the hydrocortisone.

itchy clitoris?

?Masturbation reason

Candida_vulvovaginitis
Little girls often explain the reason why they rub or touch their genitalia is "it itches" and is normal behavior. Naturally kids should be advised to do this in private. Yeast infection in older girls and women as well as accumulation of smegma around upper part of the labia minora (inner lips) can all cause a clitoral itch. Can also be related to sexual stimulation.

Red itchy bumps?

Hives

Toxicodendron_dermatitis
Red itchy bumps may be hives, bed bugs, mosquito bites, spider bites, poison ivy and many other things. Of course more detail is needed to help you but an antihistamine pill like allegra 180 mg once daily could help reduce the itch. A steroid cream may be helpful too.

Red itchy eyebags?

Contact Dermatitis

Red
Contact dermatitis of the eyelid is mediated by a type IV hypersensitivity reaction in allergic contact dermatitis and by direct toxic effect in irritant contact dermatitis. It is more often caused by a product applied to the hair, nails, or face than by products applied directly to the eyelids. See your dermatologist for treatment and a patch test to find out what you are allergic to.
