In brief: Rash

Hard to say without a photo.
It can be a reaction to something external, that is an allergy or a manifestation of an internal process. Some rashes may be associated with viruses and other infections. It would be best to have your doctor take a look.

In brief: Rash

Your rash may be pityriasis rosea which is a red itcht rash.
It does not respond to hydrocortisone because the rash is caused by a fungus that lasts for 6-8 weeks. Using blue selsun hair shampoo may be helpful. Of course, a visit to a dermatologist would also help to confirm the diagnosis
