Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have itchy red rash on the ankle and stomach. Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like chickenpox , contact dermatitis , darier disease , discoid eczema , erythema nodosum or heat rash . I would suggest you to apply cold compresses to rashes , apply petroleum jelly , protect them from sun exposure and take anti histamine like benadryl twice a day . If condition does not get well then consult dermatologist for proper examination . Doctor may prescribe immunosuppressants along with corticosteroid ointment and antibiotics .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
