Fungal Skin Rash on Stomach
close up of skin rash on stomach
This skin rash that I have had for one month now started off as a couple tiny but extremely itchy dots or spots on the skin of my stomach region. These skin rash dots were so small that you could not even see them. However, you could feel that they were present on my skin. As time went by, the skin rash was only itchy when it was touched but it also began to spread and cover more area of my stomach and deepened in color rather quickly. I have included two images of the skin rash on my stomach and one of these images is a close-up to better illustrate the skin rash problem. Where the rash began, which is the half a circle deeper red part in the image, the skin is now bumpier and drier than the rest of the rash. This tells me the rest of the rash will look like this eventually as well if it is not treated.
What I thought caused this skin rash on my stomach was my new birth control that I started taking. It was the only thing I could think of that was different around the time that the rash started to appear on my skin. Therefore, I stopped taking the birth control pills for one week but the rash still progressed and so then I figured it was not the pills that were causing this skin problem and I then continued to take the birth control pills again. My uncle is a doctor and he said to try anti fungal cream. He said that it could more likely be a fungus than a local skin allergy taking into account the area that it is in and especially that the skin rash is staying in a confined region – my stomach area as shown in my skin rash pictures.
