User :   I have had a recurring rash at the top of my tailbone by my buttocks that starts with a tingling and has small fluid filled blisters. It is not spreading and only appears here, though I had a 5 little blisters near the corner of my mouth also. any ideas?
Doctor :   hello
Doctor :   may i know your age and gender please ?
User :   do you have any ideas what this might be?
User :   I am female and 56 yrs. old, and I have had shingles before
User :   this rash has been recurring for the past year also
Doctor :   do you have any other medical condition ?
User :   NO, I am in really good health, am not overwight and get excercise and eat pretty good
Doctor :   thats good
Doctor :   so this rash now when did it happened ?
Doctor :   how many days have gone by ?
User :   I have been trying to dry this out w/rubbing alchohol and then I apply a clear drying agent to it. Like I said, it has been reaccuring for the past year.
Doctor :   and have you seen any physician regarding it ?
User :   NO, not yet. I thought it was shingles, but it is not spreading, and is just basically in this one spot, though the mouth thing has been on and off in the last month or so.
Doctor :   does it itch ?
User :   at first it does when a new little bump appears and it tingles too
Doctor :   ok well it does sounds like more of a fungal skin infection
User :   I have checked online and it appears that alot of people have had this with no explaination.
Doctor :   i recommend you to see a dermatologist
User :   ok, so does that mean I go to the dr. for a prescription, or tis there something over the counter I can do?
Doctor :   it should be examined
User :   that's what I thought, and I have one any way. ok. thanks for your time
Doctor :   and the reason i am telling you
Doctor :   is that since its recurring over 2 years that why
Doctor :   see an over the counter can give you temporary relief
Doctor :   but we should find the root cause
User :   I know that makes sense. I will have it looked at then
Doctor :   so that its taken care of FOR GOOD
Doctor :   your most welcome
User :   is it possible to have reaccuring herpes zozter
Doctor :   it would be painful
User :   ok. thank you
Doctor :   your welcome
Doctor :   take care
