Red Rash And Bad Smell Between Legs
Below scrotum and toward right leg I have a damp red rash that smells like fish. If scrubbed in shower produces slight pains. What is this?
Possible fungal: The damp red rash with a fishy smell may be from a longstanding fungal infection; however if sexually active, could be related to std. I would recommend over the counter antifingal cream (lotrimin (clotrimazole) af) - apply a thin layer am/pm for 5 days- if not resolved- see your pohysician and get checked for stds. ...Read more

My 7 mnth old son's penis tip smells bad. No rash, no fever, no redness or discharge. Wht could it be? His doc pulled back foreskin to check. I m worried
Probably normal: If your doctor checked it and it looked normal, then it most likely is normal. There is a normal cheesy substance, called smegma, under the foreskin and that is probably what you are smelling. Don't forcefully pull the skin back if the penis is not circumcised. That will lead to pain, swelling and infection. ...Read more

If there are many spider angiomas, a person would need to be evaluated, as there are several health conditions that can cause it. For a more definitive diagnosis, please see your dermatologist.

Leg itch: A natural question would be to ask if you came in contact with Poison Ivy or Poison Oak.

If the rash is spreading you should probably see a Dermatologist. ...Read more

Dr, I have severe itching in leg with red rashes for last two days & reduces on Avil tab. 'm on warf 6mg & HCQ 400. Is it medicine's allergy?
Probably not: But you need to talk to your doctor about this issue. Warfarin rash tends to induce huge bruises and likely more generalized than confined to the legs. However it is possible that this may be from HCQ especially if it had been introduced within the past month or so. If problem persists, you may need to see a dermatologist. If it is helped by Advil, (ibuprofen) I would look for the presence of vasculitis. ...Read more

Your description does not bear any resemblance to this. ...Read more

painful rash on back and legs can be due to many causes. One patient developed such a rash after staying in a hotel; my diagnosis was bed-bug-allergy, as the rash was limited to the back of trunk, and back of legs, and the protected areas such as those covered by intimate clothing was not affected. Since your eyes are red and swelling everywhere other causes of need consideration. ...Read more
