Hi, I have had a pink, bumpy, but not itchy, rash along my rib cage for about a week. But just recently, it has spread to my stomach and inner thighs. I am on no meds and have not changed location. I have never been allergic to anything and have had no previous medical problems. I am a 20 year old female, height 5 5 , weight 180.

hi Phoenix ,
Thanks for writing in.

The rash you are suffering can be pityriasis rosea.It is a type of viral infection.

It is self limiting and there is nothing to be worried about.
You can apply calamine lotion over the area .
Avoid any other drugs or medications.

I encourage you to visit a dermatologist for proper diagnosis and examination.

Hope this helps.
