I have a rash right above my ankle, I had two little cuts on my ankle that itched & over the past two weeks is has become a rash that itches horribly.

Rash from scratching: I suspect that the rash (at least in part) is probably from your scratching that area which itches you. So have you tried either covering it to make it more difficult to scratch, put some moisturizing cream on to tone down the itch, or something over the counter such as Bacteen which has a temporary cooling/numbning effect? Your doctor can prescribe more potent creams to get you to not scratch it ...Read more

Itchy sun rash: Sun exposure rashes could mean a reaction to your sunscreen or a "sun allergy" like polymorphous light reaction (pmle). 90% of sun rashes are due to pmle, but there are other conditions that can make you sensitive to sunlight. If the rash is from the sun, the areas that were exposed to the sun would be most affected. Also, sunburn would make your psoriasis itch. This needs evaluation. ...Read more

I was diagnozed with Epidermo Dermitis Localista- i have inflammation rash that itches .prescribed Betametazon ointment. will it go away if i apply it?

Yes it should: although you already tried travocort cream the Betamethasone has a good chance at helping. I would take cool showers and use glycerin soaps instead of real soap. When you get out of the shower you should apply a good moisturizer to your wet skin prior to toweling dry..then towel dry. then apply the Betamethasone 2-3 times per day for a week or less. Antihistamine is a must if itching at night. ...Read more
