Facial breakout like bug bites, some big some small that healed up and now have armpit/groin rash. Other infested areas. Began with new comforter set

Hard to say: Without looking at the rash and it being localized now to the armpit and groin, I would suspect a possible bacterial rash or allergic. The comforter is absolutely new - not used, right? Either way get it seen by a doc.

Rash under right armpit, right shoulder and breast...Diagnosed as shingles but now have rash on left side in groin area? Can that still be shingles?

Rash under right armpit, right shoulder and breast...Diagnosed as shingles but now have rash on left side in groin area? Can that still be shingles?

No absolutely not: Rash of shingles is raised and fluid filled. Most important it is extremely painful. You didn't mention pain so I assume that's not a factor. I know this is not shingles because it almost never appears in two dermatomes simultaneously due to the rapid immune response which contains the infection. Go see your dermalogist or fp.

See derm: This is a rather common condition especially when one lives in a hot environment. This is an inflammatory issue which can often be controlled with low dose abx based on its antiinflammatory activity.

I seem to have a rash that moves to different parts of my body. Usually under arm, or in groin area, and sometimes a red line near it.?

Moving rash: The armpit and groin are naturally moist, but also normally home to benign yeast, fungi and bacteria. This may be nothing to be worried about, but it can be a sign of diabetes. Diabetics are prone to infections. Other immune suppressors can also do this, so time for a check at a primary care provider more then a simple answer on line. Check it out to be safe.

In the last month or so I have experienced an itch in my groin/thigh area and on my arm pit. There isn't a rash but there are inflamed bumps?

In the last month or so I have experienced an itch in my groin/thigh area and on my arm pit. There isn't a rash but there are inflamed bumps?

Yeast??: These are common areas for yeast infection. One of the most common causes is incomplete drying off after a shower or bath. It's an easy dermatological condition usually very easy to treat. If you are diabetic and/or obese it is more common. Please see your primary care physician. Also try to avoid tight fitting clothes & underwear for at least a week.

Itchy Rash: Hello, some rashes can be location specific, however there are always exceptions. The areas your rash is located can frequently be caused by yeast or fungal infections. People with skin folds, diabetes, or who are immunocompromised are prone to these type of rashes. See a dermatologist if otc anti fungal cream doesn't help. Keep these areas dry and cool, open to air as often as you can.

See derm: If you have pustules at the armpits and groin, it may be from infection of the glands. Antiperspirant and/or low-dose antibiotic may be helpful but steroid cream may make it worse.

Some type Allergy: Perhaps you are developing a reaction to something on the skin. Did you change clothing washing soap, new perfume, other topical skin product? See a physician for exam, labs and start on your way to feeling better.

Itchy: Sounds as if you have possibly developed a rash. These can be caused by fungus and there are many over-the-counter regimens that can be used. A favorite is to lotremin or tinactin (tolnaftate) which comes in a cream or spray and use this on a regular basis for the next two weeks to see if improves

I've been taking clindamycin for about a week then woke up with a hives in my armpits and groin area?

See DR: You have unusual medical problems for you age. Why clindamycin? Allergy to antibiotic usually causes hives ALL OVER. The timing is right but the localization raises questions. Are you sure it is hives? Stop clindamycin and see your DR immediately. You may need a dermatologist.
