Well i have been on antibiotics for a fairly long time, and just recently i have developed this rash that is on my stomach, bottom and inner legs, i have tried steriod creams and cortizone creames and to no avail. I have always had rashes, but i have never had one this big and i really dont know what it is or how to remove it, sometimes its itchy and sometimes it just hurts, it seems to be spreading up my body.

I also have these red lines in my armpits that i cant get rid of, i have tried antifungal creams and steriod creams and they do nothing, sometimes its bright red, and sometimes its a lighter shade of red, like in the picture. I dont want to go to the doctor again, as i have been there about 20 times in the last year.
Anybody help?

Get a good quality PROBIOTIC and take a double dose for a few weeks - this should help. Google rash and candida overload and consider a candida cleanse. Antifungal topical ointments are not going to help - but try green tea washes and a good concentrated aloe product. Colloidal silver is excellent as well. And know this won't go away overnight.

  • if you are still on the antibiotics?... maybe you have become allergic to them.

  • The one under your arm looks like a sort of sweat rash I used to get. It could get quite sore too. I out grape seed oil on it and overnight it would would sort dry up and in a day it would be gone.

  • I had the same problem looks like food allergies. Your gonna have to do a process of elimination.Try removingWheat EggsSoy Milk (Dairy Products) If some in your family has allergies (Preferably parents, grandparents) ask them what there allergic too and eliminate that from your diet.If all else fails go to the doctor and have him send you to a specialist in allergies.

  • It looks like hot tub rash also known as folliculitis. Were you in a hot tub at all before this rash broke out? I hope you find an answer and find healing.

  • Have you asked your doctor about the possibility of having Sarcoidosis? This is a disease that can affect multiple organs, including the skin. It can show up in the skin in the form of a rash. If I were you, I'd definitely ask my doctor about Sarcoidosis!

  • same rash and it has been there since January. Dermotologist did a biopsy and said it was NOT cancer, I didnt think it was. I have been on creams and antihistimes, nothing helps. It seems to go away then comes back, it spreads. I need to know if it is contagious someone else in the house got it now and it wont go away. I have tried tea tree oil, neem oil beside the meds from the doctor.Its driving me insane with all the itching.The doctor cant figure it out, is there anyone who can?Plese help

  • I have had this rash for over a year on my thighs, beltline, back knuckles and arms and shoulders. The doctors said it was "hot tub rash" and perscribed Triamcinolone Acetonide cream. It relieved the itching but the rash never went away and became inflammed on several occassions. The blisters would leak a clear liquid and itch. Finally, at Walgreens I purchased a cream called Staphaseptic. It is awesome. Within 24 hours the rash was healing and is almost completely gone bow. Even the scars are going away!!! This is the cure!!!

  • you all might want to read this website too, you may have an overgrowth of demodex mites due to your diet.. cut out wheat and all sugars etc. and read this whole thread, get busy buying the tea tree oil and finding the right oil to carry it. I find the macadamia nut oil a bit heavy for my skin but almond oil and cocunut oil are nice. do the treatment for the whole 120 days of the life cycle of the mite. http://www.growyouthful.com/comment-ailment-remedy.php?ailmentNo=64&remedyNo=32 you could also try this cream of the Dr. who figured this all out. It is from China and they do deliver to Canada and USA.http://www.demodexsolutions.com/default.asp?all_about_demodex.asp~mainFramepass this info around please. The western Dr.s do not know about this cure or maybe don't believe it but it does work. Be patient and dilegent. I'm on day 7 of my treatment and my rosacea or whatever it is is doing much better. Good luck :)
