I have a rash on my buttock that looks like a burn. Hurts when I touch it. Have tried several things. Nothing is working. What might it be?

Burning rash: Painful rashes with small blisters on one side of the buttock, trunk or face should always be considered for shingles and treated within 72 hours to reduce risk of permanent nerve damage. Fungal rashes of the skin are best treated with otc terbinafine, and covering with zinc oxide ointment like desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) to protect.

I am experiencing skin pain on my right flank that hurts even when my shirt touches it. I do not have a rash that I can see. What's the cause?

Early shingles??: Not certain, but it does sound like local nerve irritation, especially because of the super-sensitivity. If a rash breaks out from here, see MD right away, I would be concerned you might be immune-suppressed. Of course other ailments could cause, and be very benign. Also, if it is shingles, earlier the treatment, the better. This is always perplexing. Get well. Happy New Year. ...Read more

So I have a really bad issue with shafing, like my thys tubing together. I only walked around for an hour today an I have a rash in my inner thys so bad it hurts to touch and walk. The rash is raised raw red bumps. Can anything help with this?

Yes: You can wear cotton or other sweat-absorbing material pants that extend below the level of your thighs. It is possible that losing some of the fat in your thighs (by diet and/or exercise) could help, too. For the short term, cool the rash with a cold pack and apply a mild over-the-counter steroid preparation (as long as there is no break in the skin where the rash is). ...Read more

Start with lotrimin (clotrimazole) cream mixed with newsprint and a small amount of Hydrocortisone cream. I think u may need 2 get seen for antibiotics, use that until appt. ...Read more
