Hello,

It could be an allergic reaction.

As first-line management, you can take drugs like cetirizine for symptomatic relief.

If itching persists better to consult a dermatologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

A rash appeared on my butt a couple weeks ago. the rash was very red but not painful and not that itchy. there were bright red blotches. the rash was confined to the center of my butt cheeks where my anus is but did not go inside my crack or elsewhere. it appeared after a night of heavy drinking (beer). A few days earlier I had unprotected vaginal sex. i went to my doctor who was unsure of what it was but said it was most likely contact dermatitis and prescribes a steroid cream and said to come back if it spread. 2 weeks later the rash had basically healed and i woke up with what looks like a cluster of mosquitoe bites in the same area. 2 days after another night of drinking beer. this rash is not the same as before as it resembles mosquito bites insteas of the bright red rash i had before but it seems as though it is spreading when i scratch it. it is far itchier this time as well. any ideas as to what this may be?

I m asking for a friend, she s 70 and has been battling a full body itchy rash for months. Her only relief is after a shower which she takes 3 a day. She said he hasn t changed soap etc. she is only drinking water all day - no vitamins either - for the past 2 days with a small dinner trying to detox her body. She did recently start taking zinc. Plus there was zinc I her multi but didn t see rash as a side effect.
