Had intramuscular injections in buttock on fri. Pain is radiating down leg. Never had this problem before. No redness. Hard to walk.

I have red itchy rash on my right buttock. I sit all day and is that a cause. Iam a receptionist. It comes and goes. Does not itch all the time.

Rash: Rashes are impossible to diagnose over the computer. Usually sitting is not a risk factor for developing a rash, unless you are very old (It states you are 106?), and you get skin "breakdown" from not moving around (similar to a "bed sore"). When the rash is visible, have a dr. Look at it to give you a diagnosis and any necessary treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more

Noticed 8 spread out red bumps on buttock cheek this morning, slightly itchy. Not puss filled or blisters. Never had anything like this b4. Herpes??
