I am 3 months pregnant and about 2 weeks ago noticed a small rash on the leftside of my neck. I have scratched it so bad, it seems to have spread all over my chest. It is red, unbearably itchy, and bumpy. I notice when I am in the sun, it gets even more itchy. What should I do?

I have a rash on my neck. It itches and then it gets puffy and it looks like I ve been scratched all over the area. It is starting to come up above my eyes as well. It is not bumps, no puss is involved. It tends to look better when I don t scratch it but the itching won t stop.

I have a rash in my butt crack. I have had shingles in the past before, but they were located on the left side of my head. My wife says the rash kinda looks like either poison oak or shingles. My MD is currently on vacation and I really don t want to go to the ER unless I absolutely have to.

I am diabetic and I have pimple looking skin rash. They seem to have a hard core and they stay around for months. If you try to get them to go away, that is almost impossible to accomplish. I have been told it is because I pick at them, but that doesn t seem to be true.
