Skin Problems

About 2 weeks ago I developed a red rash on my arms,chest, back, and legs. I have tried everything I think of to get rid of it. I saw a nurse practitioner but she didn’t seem to know what to do about it. It itches and will appear to get better then come back.I am not taking any new medication’s. I have not changed laundry soap, fabric softener, bath soap, or lotions.Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

Did you try an anti fungal cream? I just ask cuz I have to use it a lot

Hi Ruthie

I would see the doctor 2 years ago I had a horrible rash on my back and used over the counter cream that reacted with it and now have terrible scarring. I have lupus and will get rashes all the time I use a prescription cream and it usually clears up in a couple of days.

I will see a doctor if it is not gone in a few days. Thanks for the info :slight_smile:

You should see a dermatologist. You may have psoriasis. This would necessitate completely different treatment than a mere rash. I would not use any antifungal creams on it until you get a diagnosis. Psoriasis is also an autoimmune disorder. I have Ps and PsA (psoriatic arthritis). Best of luck to you.

My issue is with facial rashes and acne. I have been diagnosed with Rosacea. Any suggestions? Cream makeup etc. I have tried all kinds of creams prescriptions. Etc.

I have never been diagnosed with rosacea. I am not sure of the tx. Have you seen a dermatologist?
