Erythrasma: I assume you used actual antibiotics and not antifungals . You could have Erythrasma which is a bacterial infection that just like fungus affects areas of moist skin. The rash may have well defined borders and may become brownish. Topical and sometimes oral antibiotics are necessary. Keeping the area dry is the way to prevent this. Check that you are in good health for example no diabetes ...Read more

What would cause a rash in hotspot areas, purple and red bumps on legs and on groin ?

Yeast infection plus burning, tingling in legs (no rash), two small pimple like bumps (1 near groin, 1 on butt) 1 on groin went away already. Related?

Yeast/pimples: probably NOT. vaginal yeast infections are exactly that - vaginal. It sounds like you may have had two small infected hair follicles - folliculitis that have at least partially resolved (as this can) on their own. I would avoid trying to "pop" them and use moist heat or simply monitor the remaining one. ...Read more

This : This rash could be a few different things. - impetigo is a skin infection caused by bacteria - either streptococcus or staph. This needs to be treated with antibiotics. - contact dermatitis is skin inflammation. It can be caused by plants such as poison ivy or poison oak or it can be from contact of a chemical or item that a person is particularly sensitive to. This is usually treated with steroid creams or oral steroids. - viral illness such as chicken pox, shingles or herpes can also cause painful blisters on a red base. This can be treated with anti-virals or just needs to run its course depending on the severity of the infection. The best thing to do is to contact his doctor and have him seen, since each possible problem requires different treatments. Good luck. ...Read more

This is unusual: Leah, you really need to see a clinician both to get relief from the symptoms and find the cause. You can take over the counter antihistamines like Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for the itching, but the soreness is strange and could mean it is something more than just an allergy. Good luck! ...Read more
