Rash on breast region cascaded down abdomen. Bumps on back, arms, inner thigh, big red patches. What is it?

I have a rash primarily located on my breast region that has cascaded down my abdomen, with light small bumps beginning on my back, arms, and inner thigh. The small bumps look similar to previous contact dermatitis, however in the area mostly concentrated under my breast I have bigger red patches around 2-5cm in length. I am quite itchy and neither fungal nor bacteria creams have worked. What may I have? What can I do about it.

Hi, thanks for your query.

As per your description of the rash and its areas of involvement it seems to be a fungal rash.

It occurs in the areas which are prone to be moist like body folds. moisture and sweat facilitates the growth of fungi.

To treat the same you may require a course of oral anti fungal drugs along with local anti fungal creams, and oral anti histamines for itching.

You may consult a dermatologist for exact diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Hope this solves your query.
You may write back if you have further queries in this regard.
Wish you a good health.
