I am suffering from red rashes on my shoulder. What cream should I apply?

Depends: One has to know what the diagnosis is. If it's an allergic reaction to clothing (contact dermatitis) a cortisone type cream would help. If it's a fungus infection an antifungal cream is indicated. If it's a bacterial infection (cellulitis) an antibacterial cream like bacitracin is needed. See your physician or dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment if your rash persists. ...Read more

I have an itch on my upper arm and shoulder for 4 days. There is no redness or rash. Nothing I have tried helps.?

Causes...: Of itching without rash include medicines, foods, dust, pollen, and stress. It could also be an allergic reaction to something that contacted your skin and hasn't yet formed a rash (although any rash would probably have appeared by now). But it could also be a sign of an underlying internal problem, so if it doesn't respond to a good antihistamine like Allegra or claritin, (loratadine) see your doctor. ...Read more

Possible insect bite that appeared w/red ring around it yesterday. The ring is not raised. Pain at site on right shoulder & tingling today. Help?

Needs evaluation: I think it would be very important for a medical professional to look at this to help determine 'what' it is... Sometimes an insect bite can become secondarily infected - so this redness needs to be properly evaluated. Could this bug bite have been from a tick? There are certain tick borne diseases as well that one needs to be on the look out for. An Infectious Diseases doc is specialized for that ...Read more

Rash under right armpit, right shoulder and breast...Diagnosed as shingles but now have rash on left side in groin area? Can that still be shingles?

No absolutely not: Rash of shingles is raised and fluid filled. Most important it is extremely painful. You didn't mention pain so I assume that's not a factor. I know this is not shingles because it almost never appears in two dermatomes simultaneously due to the rapid immune response which contains the infection. Go see your dermalogist or fp. ...Read more
