Red patches on pubic area, spreading to inner thigh, stomach, under breasts, hands. What could this be?

Hi, i am a 28 yr old female; two weeks ago i noticed some pinkish-red patches on my pubic area, it quickly spread to my inner thigh. They vary in sizes, slightly raised, some scaly/dry, they itch and burn . A few days later i noticed some in my torso, and under my breast. I now have a few in my forearms and even some small ones in the palm of my hands. It coincided with a cold and fever. No other symptoms now, but the rash is still there. I applied anti-fungus spray, even taken benadryl . Any thoughts?

Hi, thanks for posting your query

the rash involving pubic area, inner thigh, under the breast, seems to be a fungal infection , which is commonly seen in body folds , due to sweat , it can occur on other parts like torso, arms , palms
But other conditions need to be considered before starting treatment after proper examination

pitryasis rosea which is a self limiting condition has to be ruled out
It may be exanthematous rash related to fever
two conditions may co exist

I advise you to visit a doctor nearby to confirm the disorder and start treatment accordingly

Hope this helps you

Hello dear, it is appearing like fungal infection only.
It needs to be treated with anti fungals.
Please meet a dermatologist. Only thing to remember is that apply the cream for atleast one month , thank you
