I have a small pink-red dry patch of skin that is not itchy or painful on my lower buttock, is it a rash? What could be the cause?

It depends.: You might have been born with it. This happens sometimes, and is usually called a port wine stain, or simply a discoloration of the skin due to lack of pigment. It also might be a lesion/cut/bite that healed long ago and stayed red. If you have others, it could be a skin condition from some disease. It would be wise to see your doctor to be sure, or just be aware of it if you are ok otherwise. ...Read more

Usually sitting is not a risk factor for developing a rash, unless you are very old (It states you are 106?), and you get skin "breakdown" from not moving around (similar to a "bed sore"). When the rash is visible, have a dr. look at it to give you a diagnosis and any necessary treatment. Best wishes. ...Read more
