I get an itchy rash that alternates between my upper thigh for a week or two and months later i get the same rash over a tattoo on one breast.

Consider fungus: Without actually laying eyes on the rash and examining it properly, it's nearly impossible to tell for sure. But one thing that pops into my head is the possibility of a fungal infection. The places you are having the rash are places that are prone to chafing and/or lingering perspiration, which can be breeding grounds for a fungal infection. Go see your doctor for exam for proper treatment. ...Read more

If this applies to you, try to keep these areas dry by using antiperspirant . In the meanwhile try some anti-fungal cream on the areas for a few days.

Ask anyone who has had hematomas (blood collections in tissue), in which the uptake of iron by macrophages results in permanent dark areas. Not in everybody, but some. ...Read more
