I have what seems to be a red semi scaly itchy rash on my scrotum and im looking for a way to treat it fast before it gets worse some skin is cracked?

Here are some ...: Besides further detailed Hx, a direct look at the concerned area on the scrotum is essential to deduce possible Dx. But gently cleaning and drying the area and lightly applying antifungal with steroid cream 1-2 times daily would be the reasonable temporary measure before gaining pro-evaluation and counseling within 3-5 days.

I have had a very itchy rash on the top of my buttcrack. I tried vaseline and lotrimin (clotrimazole) with no help. Any suggestions?

Find the cause: You should find out what it is. If it's a fungal rash, the vaseline is completely undoing any benefit you might be getting from the lotrimin (clotrimazole). That's also a common place for herpes, which can be itchy, and neither vaseline nor lotrimin (clotrimazole) would treat herpes. Since it's not possible to post pictures on healthtap, I'd suggest you see a doctor during an outbreak of the rash. ...Read more

I have a strange itchy rash on the top of toes. Could this be reaction to antibiotics I am taking for a sinus infection? It's augmentum.

Reaction to antibiot: The chance that this is a reaction to the antibiotic are slim, as an allergic reaction will usually start centrally, and not in the periphery. It is still possible, but not likely. Allergy will come about as a fine rash, up to hives, and are very itchy. You may have a different issue, but I would suggest you see your doctor to lood at the rash, diagnose this and give you appropriate treatment. ...Read more

What causes an itchy rash with little bumps on top of my feet and redness on lower legs? Also, bumps are not itching anymore, now they are dry bumps.
