Red rash around hips. Reaction to nylon?

Hi, I have a red rash around my hips and bikini isn t itchy and hasn t spread beyond the two spots...looks similar to hives but isn t raised or bumpy. Showed up after wearing nylon underwear so I stopped wearing them but the rash hasn t disappeared s been 3 days. Could it be something other than a reaction to the nylon?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

If it was allergic due to reaction against it would be a itchy lesion .The chances on it based on your description to be a fungal infection is more.

I suggest you to apply a cream called Cannestine which will help you get rid of the same.

Wish you good health.
