Rash on thigh, dry and hurts, red bumps. How to get rid of it and treatment?

I have a rash on my inner mid thigh. It is very dry and hurts to the touch. There are some red bumps , it is about the length of a roll of quarters and a tad bit thicker then that roll. I have tried putting lotion on it and some vasaline protectant cream. And it is still there. I would like to know why I have it, how it happened. And what I can do to get rid of it. Also I do have bigger thighs and it may be caused by them rubbing on my pants. But I don t think so.

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you may be having frictional dermatitis,caused by friction of thighs due to big thighs during walking.You should do exercise to reduce the fatty thighs. Take antihistaminics like levocetirizine and apply mild steroid cream on the lesions. If needed, you may take steroids in tappering dose. Avoid soap bath.
If there is secondary infection, take antibiotics.

You consult dermatologist and have blood tests to rule out DM and other internal diseases.

I hope you got my answer.
