Thanks for your query.

Skin rashes which spread are usually caused by infections and ones which are restricted to the superficial layers could be due to fungal infections.

I would like to know the tests done and medications you have used which help me to rule out certain possibilities and advice how to move next.

Kindly to mention or attach the reports of the tests you underwent and the also mention the medications with name and dosage you had been till now for the problem.
