Painful and itchy rash on shoulder - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : Hello.
Doctor : How can I help you?
User : I have this red rash on my shoulder that feels as if my shoulder just had a workout. I developed this rash since Sunday. Before it was just itchy, now itâ??s a little painful and a rash appeared. There is no discharge and the skin is not flaky. I am not sure if it is tinea or eczema. I did have previously history of tinea, but that was in the summer because of the moist and warm weather. I have treatment for tinea: ketoconazole. I also have clobetasol propionate which could be used for eczema. However, I am not sure which one to use and whether there could be side effects from using the wrong one. Would it be harmful to try the clobetasol first?
