Try treating with either a topical steroid such as Cortaid (hydrocortisone) or an anti-itch lotion such as sarna or sarna for sensitive skin.

Fungus: This sounds like a fungal infection. This could be "ringworm" (tinea corporis) or tinea versicolor. If it is tinea corporis, then it is contagious. If it is tinea versicolor, then it is more of a nuisance, but can be challenging to control. I would see your pcp or a dermatologist to get an actual diagnosis. ...Read more

I have a dry patch of skin on the back of my neck. I believe its from shampoo though I've tried several kinds. Lotion doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?

Not shampoo.: It's not shampoo if you've tried several kinds, and if the back of the neck is the only area affected. Cause could be any number of things.

I have skin infection behind my neck, skin is rough and black at the place and there is a lit of itching, can anyone suggest me what kind of infection?

See a dermatologist: You may have something called acanthosis nigricans,
which is really not an infection. If the back of your neck feels velvety and soft and is darker than the rest of your skin it is possible you have this. To be sure I would see a dermatologist,
since it can be associated with other things. ...Read more

Neck Irritation: A red rash or bumps after shaving are common signs of irritation. I would first recommend using a razor blade with fewer blades (ex. Some razors have up to 5 blades, so choose something with 3 or fewer). Another option is to try a product called tend skin to reduce irritation on your neck after shaving. ...Read more
