Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

There are many types and causes of skin rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Sounds like a form of Eczema. Use a Hydrocortisone cream 1% over-the-counter -- apply 2x/day. If no better in 2 weeks , see a Dermatologist.

Dry red spot appeared on skin by hip, rash covering my body followed. Red, circular, ITCHY, spots from neck to groin, front and back. Help!!

Rash

Dermatitis
Sounds like it could be Pityriasis Rosea a non dangerous self limiting rash in younger people. Google it and see if it matches. However, you should see a dermatologist to confirm this and to make sure you are not dealing with anything else. Hope this helps.

This sounds like a contact dermatitis - either allergic or irritant. Very possibly related to necklace or other article of clothing that may come in comtact with that area.
