Itchy rash on pubic area after 2 days of shaving ?

Folliculitis

Sounds like folliculitis. If the redness spreads or the skin gets firm, hot, painful then see a doctor since it could be a cellulitis (infection).

Gave penicillin to my 7yo son for strep a day ago today he has itchy rash in pubic area, shold he finish penicillin? Gave him Benadryl.

Rash

Benadryl
A sandpaper feeling pink rash localized to the pubic area is often seen in strep infections.It can also spread to the rest of the body,but treatment usually slows this progression.It usually appears the first 24 hrs of the strep infection if it occurs at all.Hives would suggest an allergic rxn. Benedryl is ok for itching as needed.Discuss with your PCP.

I have an itchy rash in one area of my pubic hair?

Many differing dx

Contact_dermatitis
If you shave or use hair removers, these could certainly lead to an itchy, inflammatory process in the pubic area. Contact dermatitis, or a sensitivity or allergy, could also do this. Yeast infections from sweating are yet another possibility. Then there are infectious, contagious processes like pubic lice and scabies that could be culprits.

What could cause extreme itchy rash in pubic area all of a sudden? Also have random spots on stomach, arms, legs, back and buttocks. No new detergent

Itchy rashes

Pruritis
For skin rashes, a variety of skin conditions can present similarly with spotty itchy rashes. To get a correct diagnosis, we need to see and examine it so a correct course of treatment could be made. Spotty itchy rashes can be folliculitis, hives or eczema. They are treated differently. I would suggest you see a local physician.

I have a red, very itchy rash under my chest hair and in my pubic hair. Comes and goes, potentially seems stress related. Rash looks like speckles.

See a dermatologist

Dermatitis
It is often related to a fungal infection of the skin and can be easily treated. See a dermatologist. Do not use Kenalog without a specific diagnosis.

How did i suddenly get an itchy rash? Are all sudden itchy rashes allergic in nature?

Rashes

Rash
Most allergic rashes are itchy however, not all itchy rashes are allergic. A good example is scabies that is cause by an arthroppod (insect) that tunnels beneath the skin. Ask your Primary Care provider to evaluate the rash first, seek a Dermatologists opinion if the PCP can not determine the cause.

Dr. Alan Gorenberg answered:

what causes redish non itchy rash on vaginal area?

You need exam

There are many potential causes of this, including some types of infections or even Paget's disease (which is cancer). Most allergic rashes have itching, so an allergic reaction is probably not the cause.

Sudden reddish, somewhat itchy rash around groin area, what do i do?

Don't panic.

Dermatitis
Nothing makes people more nervous than a rash in the genital area. It could be anything from jock itch to an allergy to something you applied in that area to, yes, something you caught from intimate contact. Put your mind at ease by seeing your doctor and getting it sorted out. You can try OTC hydrocortisone cream first if you wish, but if that doesn't work, see your doc or a dermatologist.

My boyfriend has a red itchy rash on his genital area what could this be?

The jock in him?

Rash
The most common red itchy rash in the genital area would be a fungal infection. Other causes of rash can be a drug reaction (either from something spread in the area to which he is allergic or a fixed drug rash from something taken internally). Auto-immune diseases can sometimes cause groin rashes as can some sexually transmitted ds. Try OTC lotrimin and if no response, see your doctor.

Itchy rash on small areas of upper chest and shoulder?

If it's red and itchy, more than likely it's an allergic reaction to something (new skin care product, soap, detergent, fragrance, etc...) could be something else though, so should be checked and treated to give you relief.
