I would start: By using a an antifungal cream like lotrimin, mix with Hydrocortisone and possibly even some topical silver cream. Those three in combo, used every day for a month then 2 d per week should help. The pigmentation could be do to scratching but if overweight and/or strong family hx of type 2 dm, look up acanthosis nigricans. Good luck. ...Read more

Exanthems (= rashes): such as yours are often impossible to diagnose with out the MD having the advantage of " laying eyes on it." Photos of good resolution can help but won't supplant good clinical evaluation. There are so many possibilities it wouldn't help anything to try to narrow down with such little information. On the other hand, a good dermatologist usually can nail it in a few minutes in person. ...Read more
