How to treat a rash that started on my hips and has spread to the legs and butt?

Hi! I have a rash that started on my hips and has spread to the outside of my legs and my butt. This rash is extremely itchy and bruised where I scratched it too hard/too much. Any ideas? I also was diagnosed with blepharitis two months ago, not sure if that could be related.

Hello,

The symptoms seem to be related to shingles.

I suggest using Acyclovir cream for local application.

I also recommend using Cetirizine to relieve the itching.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
