two weeks ago i developed a rash in my groin area, it looked like red splotchy little dots everywhere. they eventually ended up spreading to my stomach. then a few days later i noticed a rash on my chest.

a week after i got the first rash i went to my doctor about it because it still hadnt gone.

he told me it was inflamed sweat glands and gave me fucicort cream to use 3 times a day until all were gone. he literally spent about 10 seconds diagnosing that.

after the first day of using the cream the rash in my groin area was gone.
however the rash on the chest was worse and has continued to get worse.

the rash on my chest now looks like small raised bumps some look like they contain some sort of liquid. they look slightly similar to pimples i guess but i know these are not pimples.

it has now been a week since my last doctor visit and my chest rash has shown no signs of improvement and i have been using the cream 3 times a day as instructed.

its now getting to the point where its getting embarassing and looks pretty groce. i am going to try get back into the doctors this week sometime. in the meantime though does anyone have any ideas as to what this might be?

note: the rash on the chest has hardly been itchy or painful.
