Rash behind knee, spreading with small bumps, pregnant. Causes and treatment?

Hi, since May I have been dealing with a rash on the back of my knee . Since the rash looked familiar I thought it was eczema and just applied cortaid. However, the rash has worsened and almost looks like it is spreading with surrounding small bumps. I also found out that I was pregnant in July and told that eczema worsens. However I do not believe this rash is eczema. I need help!!

Thanks for posting your query.

From your description it could be intertrigo w which is caused by bacterial and fungal infection.

I would recommend that you apply clotrimazole cream and fusidic acid cream over it twice a day.

If it doesn't resolve with it, it will be wise to show it to your dermatologist.

Take care
