Brief Answer:
Either ringworm infection or intertrigo, upload pictures

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
According to your complaints it could be either ringworm infection or intertrigo which is inflammation of the body folds.
I would recommend you to upload the pictures of the affected areas so that I can have a clearer picture of the condition and can guide you accordingly.

Brief Answer:
Either eczematous rash or intertrigo, cortisone cream & antihistaminic

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have reviewed the attached photograph and it is looking like either eczematous rash or intertrigo.

If I're your treating doctor I would recommend you to apply topical steroid like cortisone cream on the affected areas twice for 10-14 days.

For itching take antihistaminic like tablet Cetirizine 10 mg once daily at bedtime.

Hi Last year I had to arrest a Somalian and I thought I got bit by fleas. I have six raised red spots that itch incessantly. I got eczema as a result and have been using betamethasone dipropionate 0.05% (eleuphrat) This cleared the eczema but the original six spot remain and itch even when scratched till bleeding. The cream helps but does not get rid of them. I have no allergies.
