Rash on hips: Eczema is commonly seen on hips particularly in cold weather. Eczema is red/pink and scaly and can be very itchy. If eczema is mild, moisturizers like petroleum jelly or a fragrance-free dye-free cream 2-3 times a day may help. Over the counter cortisone creams may help as well, however, you have to make sure it is not something like a fungal infection that can look very similar to eczema. ...Read more

It may be nice to rewash all clothes like this in just water without laundry detergent an then letting your skin recover. If you are reacting to the elastic you may need a different type of underwear. A good skin doctor can help you sort all of this out. ...Read more
