I have a red bumpy itchy rash on my scrotum. Been treating it for jock itch for 4 days, now I have blood blisters there. Any ideas on what this is?

See answer : A yeast (candida) or fungal infection is likely the most common cause of a reddened, itchy scrotum which should respond to keeping it clean, dry and an antifungal cream. A contact dermatitis which is an irritation from an allergen is also common and may be from: changes in clothing material, soap, fabric softener, or any chemical. Responds best to steroid cream.

15mt ago itchy rash on legs.Full body 3mt later.4docs/many meds/biopsies/blood test=nothin.Wondring if wheat/gluten allergy? Suddenly start at age 42?

What did the Dr say?: Forget about wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity. Dermatologist among "4 docs"? "Many meds" means nothing unless you name them. What was found on biopsies? Blood tests? This has no meaning without revealing what tests and what readings. This may be serious or, at least, very debilitating. You will get nowhere on the internet. Suggest you try to get to dermatology at nearest medical school. ...Read more

Red Itchy rash that turned dark no other symptoms but fatigue have been on him for 2 weeks now WBC was high could this be mold realted?

Tick-Born Illness?: I will presume that 'on him' should read 'on abx' for 2 weeks. It sounds as though the treating clinician may have suspected a tick-born source of your rash in the setting of fatigue and prescribed a prolonged course of antibiotics to treat. Mold allergy (any allergy) can cause a variety of symptoms, including rash, but treatment for mold would not require antibiotics. ...Read more
