Brief Answer:
Kindly upload an image of this rash for review!

Detailed Answer:
HI and thanks for contacting us.

Seeing every rash is important in making the correct diagnosis and treating adequately. I suggest that you upload an image to allow me review the rash and make a diagnosis. This will pave the way for a personalized and helpful plan.

Without reviewing this rash, am afraid you may receive a rather generic response which will not be entirely applicable or helpful to you. For this reason, kindly follow the directives below to get an image sent to me.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
