Red rash.Patches of red with white flaky bits

Hi - I think I have a fungal infection I'm not too sure! I started with what looked like a shaving rash (as the nurse said when i went for a swab test) (which was all clear a part from having Thrush) the rash has now spread and i have a few patches on my back and stomach. It sometimes itches. I am seeing my doc tomorrow to see what it may be. the rash is patches of red with white flaky bits in the middle and a few white dots too? do you know what it may be? Thanks (i'm female By the way!)
