Rash on hips: Eczema is commonly seen on hips particularly in cold weather. Eczema is red/pink and scaly and can be very itchy. If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help. Over the counter cortisone creams may help as well, however, you have to make sure it is not something like a fungal infection that can look very similar to eczema. ...Read more

Not antifungal: Mupirocin, keflex and septra (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) aren't antifungals, those are antibiotics, topical and systemic. Miconazole cream though is the antifungal, it's OTC, needs at least 2 weeks of application, but you ultimately want to see your doctor, it might not be ring worm to start with, also if you have a pet at home, it needs to be taken care of, wish you all wellness. ...Read more

Circular rash: May be fungal like ringworm. You can try over the counter anti-fungal medications. or may be eczema due to dry skin or food /environmental allergies or granuloma annulare which needs steroids, sometimes you can first layer the antifungal and then on top the steroid cream or get a cream that contains both by prescription f/u /w/doc

In the meantime try applying warm packs, over the counter Hydrocortisone and neosporin cream (neomycin and polymyxin b).
Take care. ...Read more

Hi,  I have a rash that apearred on both side of my hips, around my underwear elastic line, I've had it for about a year, round, red and itchy?

Unwanted rashes: You very well may be reacting to the laundry soap concentrated in the underwear elastic band. It may be nice to rewash all clothes like this in just water without laundry detergent an then letting your skin recover.
If you are reacting to the elastic you may need a different type of underwear.

A good skin doctor can help you sort all of this out. ...Read more
