Kindly upload images

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I request you to kindly upload a few images of the affected areas in "Reports Section" so that I am able to have a look and guide you accordingly. Also let me know the topical steroid you have been using for the rash? Were you given any pills for the rash?

Hope to assist you further once I get the images
