Probably not fungal: Without examining you it is not possible to say 100%. However, it is possible that you have a bacterial folliculitis. If Diflucan (fluconazole) did not work then it is likely not fungal. I recommend you see someone for this, possibly have one of these areas cultured which should help best direct your treatment. ...Read more

Keep it clean w/ warm water - no rubbing. See a Dr for Dx and Rx. It might be an infection and they can tell and treat. Hope it heals soon! ...Read more

I had a full body wax for the first time. I have broken out into very large rashes including on my arms groin and entire buttocks. What should I do?  

I had a full body wax for the first time. I have broken out into very large rashes including on my arms groin and entire buttocks. What should I do?  

Time, cold bath: It's much more likely to be from the trauma of having your hair ripped out than a potential allergic reaction to the waxing product. This will likely improve over anywhere from a few hours to a day or so, and a cold-water bath or shower may feel good and relieve some of the redness/pain. Creams/products are unlikely to help a rash of this type. ...Read more

Infections, some contagious, must be ruled out. It is very important to visit a doctor to see the rash more importantly, to discuss the specifics of your case in a timely manner. ...Read more

Red rashes on upper arms and buttocks? He hasn't been sick lately. He says that it doesn't itch& recently told dr said it could be eczema, what can I use

Doctor can examine: Rashes can be hard to describe or diagnose without seeing them. A primary care or a dermatology doctor can look at it in order to tell what it is. If a dry skin or eczema rash, hydrocortisone cream helps. Some rashes are an allergy to something. Hydrocortisone also helps allergic rashes. Bacterial or fungal rashes benefit from antimicrobials. If it doesn't go away, a dermatologist can take a look. ...Read more
