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

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

The jock in him?: 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 (clotrimazole) and if no response, see your doctor.

Itchy rash just between thigh and my genital area. Now it's dry and skin are peeling off. The area with rash has widen and darken. Very itchy. Fungus?

Probably: This is most likely a dermatomycosis (superficial skin fungal infection), but without seeing it cannot diagnose. Most family doctors will recognize this immediately if it is what I think, and treatment can begin right away. Go and see your family doctor.

Eczema: Could be eczema which is a dry skin condition - usually worse in the winter months. Your description could also fit a whole host of other conditions so I would see a doctor about it.

Cortisone cream: Try hydrocortisone cream but if not helpful after a couple of days. Consult a doctor. If condom has been used, considered latex allergy but allergy to semen is also another possibility.

I woke up with an itchy rash all over my body except my face and genitals. It started as tiny red bumps, now some are a little bigger, still red.?

I woke up with an itchy rash all over my body except my face and genitals. It started as tiny red bumps, now some are a little bigger, still red.?

More details: This can be a drug reaction, a viral infection, or the onset of a new skin condition. Given the scanty history and description, I would suggest that you try taking antihistamine to see if it helps. If the itching is intolerable or the rash is getting worse, need to see your doctor.

Small itchy rash on calf, not sure if it could be bug bites, poision ivy, herpes (history of genital herpes), or something else.

Small itchy rash on calf, not sure if it could be bug bites, poision ivy, herpes (history of genital herpes), or something else.

?: Any itchy skin rash can be caused by many things but I suspect that a single itchy lesion on the calf is more likely from a bug bite. Try topical hydrocortisone on it to see if it helps. If not getting better after a week, see doctor.

See primary MD: Why not talk to your primary care physician. Most times they can tell what it is or they can obtain a culture to get a diagnosis when the rash is present. If they cannot treat the problem they can refer you to the appropriate sub-specialist.

Can my child get a non-itchy rash as an allergic reaction to her body wash? I noticed since changing her wash, she now has flat red rashes on her.

Yes, it is possible: Although It is not common to get an allergic rash as a reaction to the body wash, but it is possible. She should be checked by her pediatrician to be sure that it is an allergic rash and not a something else. Changing the body wash in addition to use of a mild antihistaminic medicine would solve this problem

I keep getting rashes everytime I go to the country (my whole family does)! This itchy rash also prevents me from sleep at night! What to do?

I keep getting rashes everytime I go to the country (my whole family does)! This itchy rash also prevents me from sleep at night! What to do?

See dermatologist: If this happens when you are in the countryside, you are likely allergic to something outdoors or even to the sun. I would suggest that you consult a dermatologist to find out the cause. Certainly poison oak/poison ivy is a factor to be considered especially since its resin on contaminated articles may remain potent for months.

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

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

Rashes: 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.

Need to see this: Sounds like it may well be shingles (herpes zoster), in which case she should be seen and appropriately medicated. Or it may be something entirely different. Let a doctor see this/.

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.

Various causes: Itching in the pubic area may be due to heat and sweating; fungal infection if there are skin folds; contact allergy to certain chemicals in underwear, particularly made of synthetic materials; lice transmitted by sexual contact or sleeping on an infested mattress.
