What causes itchy rashes on thighs and buttocks?
Thanks for writing to us.
From the description, I can think of few differentials in your case like eczema, psoriasis, fungal infection, urticaria etc.

it could be scabies with eczematisation
Thanks for writing to us.
I have seen the pictures attached. Lesions are red dry scaly ie look eczematous. If we go by the distribution and nocturnal itching, scabies seems to be the underlying cause.
In such cases i usually advise
1) TAblet ivermectin 12 mg single stat dose
2) Apply permethrin 5 % cream all over the body, neck downwards. Keep it overnight and bathe next morning.
3) permethrin has to be used only once. From next day onwards apply steroid cream over red itchy scaly areas twice in a day. Go with a potent steroid like clobetasol or halobetasol for faster relief
4) take cetrizine for controlling itch.
I hope this should help you out.
