I have recently noticed a rash forming on my shoulder.

I have recently noticed a rash forming on my shoulder. It was itchy and I thought that it might just be acne or maybe just an allergic reaction to something. My father is allergic to many things and typically get allergic reaction quite often. I have waited about two weeks for the rash to go go naway not using anything that possibly agitate it. Doesn’t seem to go away. I typically put cortisone on it at night and in the morning. Nothing seems to be working in face it seems to be spreading to my lower back and chest. What could it be? And what can I do to treat and prevent this breakout from happening again?

My sister has been on chemo for nearly 20 months... pill form for 18 months and IV every two weeks for the last two months. She recently finished radiation as she has an inoperable brain tumor that is cancer. She broke out into a rash that is non itchy, non raised, and almost looks like flat blood blisters. They cleared up some and came back this morning, only now much bigger on her chest and all around her stomach, back and shoulder. Could this be more than just an iron deficiency?

Hello, I am a 18 year old female and i have recently been noticing flat reddish rashes that are at least an inch or two apart from another and have been appearing on my neck, stomach, back, foot(top), shoulder , arm, ear,face, and thigh. Some are small and some are larger but within them they have raised smaller bumps and they do ITCH . At first it looked like a ringworm bt now it does not. I m not allergic to anything (not that i know of) but i have been using creams such as; Cortizone*10 and Tinactin for about a week now. I noticed it started to clear up but it still appears in other places and then seems to come back. At first they just started off as small bumps that looked like normal bumps or pimples, but when i apply the creams they start to clear up for awhile but then they start looking draker and wrinklely. Can someone please help?
