Suggest treatment for allergic skin rash
Probably an allergy
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this rash that has been ongoing for a few weeks now. I have reviewed the images you have provided. The appearance of this rash and the description you have provided is typical of an ongoing allergy. You must have been exposed to the causative agent at one of the areas you go to or live in.
The treatment of this consist in taking anti histamine drugs like benadryl, zyrtec, etc at dosages recommended by your physician. This would address the symptoms and relief the discomfort. The next and most important thing is to identify the cause of this in the environment or various milieus and stay away from. If this is not done, you would continue to suffer from similar rash in future.
In all, this is an allergy, Taking anti histamines would relief symptoms. Identifying the cause and eliminating from contact would provide the longterm solution.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarification if need be.
Did I see more than one affected site?
Thank you so much for this follow up information.
I almost made the call of ringworm before realizing that you had this rash on multiple sites. This is often not the case with eczema or ringworm unless it has been going on for longer periods or the contact was massive. ringworms are not also this red on, the center clears off while the expanding border is active. If I have not mistaken, these typical features were lacking. If you think this description fits what you are experiencing, then I must have had difficulties making out this difference on the images.
Let me know what you think. Tell if it fits the above description. Should it be ringworm, topical treatment with miconazole/clotrimazole, etc cream would clear it off.
Hope this helps. I wish you well. Hope to hear from you.
