What could be the reason for rash on the buttocks ?

I am a 33 year old healthy female. After wearing a G-sting I found medium sized red bumps like a rash on one side of my buttocks but it feels as if it s on fire with pain? It is not on my anal and it has not spread on my next buttocks cheek. Could I get this from using the toilet and possibly my G-string could of touched the side of the toilet? What could it be? What should I do? What should I apply and who should I see (GYN or Primary Physician)?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
From your description it seems to be due to some allergic reaction which has occurred due to the fabric OR TRANSMITTED FROM THE TOILET SEAT. A skin specialist will help you but you can take an antiallergic tablet and apply a local steroid and antiseptic ointment for relief.

My daughter was complaining of feeling sick yesterday and was coughing and acting like she wanted to throw up. She threw up a little last night and is still coughing today. She complained that her face was itchy and I noticed she developed a small rash on her cheek near her eye.

My 16 month old has an infected crack on his thumb from thumb sucking. It was red and swollen and had small rashy bumps around it. He received a Rocephin shot in the Dr. office and is now on Keflex for 10 days, this is day 3. The same time this infection appeared, he developed a rash on his feet and legs: red, raised bumps, that do not appear to be bothering him. The rash has now spread to his arms, hands, and face as well. He has also started to have freqent explosive diarrhea that has absolutely NO odor. Could all this be related to the infection? No fever, and the rash started prior to any antibiotic use.

Hi, doctor My daughter had her 5 year old vaccination on the 10 of January , after a couple of weeks I noticed a red rash on her legs and then her arms and the stomach, basically it spread all over her body except her face. I then took her to a pharmacist and he gave me a liquid form cortazan, medicine name is pre lone , it then started going away and as soon as she was running around and jumping up and down the jungle gyms did the rash come back really aggresively and now on her face it was very red, we then took her to a doctor and he told me she has a allergic reaction to something, but she has never had this before, I never changed her diet or the washing powder, it has been ever since the vaccination. The rash then started going away since giving her the medicine. But 3days now the rash has come back, it goes away and comes back and sometimes worse then the other times, but not as red, but itchy. Please help
