What causes red raised spots all over the body?

Hi, I have red raised spots all over my body... more and more each day. I have a large one on my inner thigh about the size of a 5 cent piece and I went to the pharmacist and she thought "ringworm" so gave me some anti-fungal cream but it didn't work, so went to the doctor and she reckons it's "excema" ??? she gave me another type of cream but thats not working either, and I am noticing more and more each day and am a bit worried. They are NOT itchy...just very RED and angry looking!! Any ideas?? Thanks (Have had for 1 week now)

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Normally circular rashes like the one that you described are fungal in nature. It is important to remember that fungal rashes can take 2 to 3 weeks in some instance to respond.

You may want to consider initiating the fungal treatment again for an extended period to see if it has an effect.

I hope this helps
