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.

I also have it.
by: Anonymous

I've had it for about a year and it started with a small patch on my upper back right under my neck. I left it alone but it started spreading behind my ears and I started using some fungal cream as a result. I would apply it one night and they would go away but then come back in a week or so. I noticed they accumulate in dark areas and dampish areas (behind the ear, the back of your neck, your back). Exposing these areas to sunlight might help but I still haven't gotten rid of them.

So did the fungal cream work? I have the same thing and can't make it go away and it's in the same spot!

Itchy

I have it also. It appears only on my left side and never on my right. Several doctors gave up on me! Weird. Have you found out what it is?

Mine seems to calm down in summer due to sea water and sun exposure.

I Have This Rash

I could have sworn it was chiggers causing this rash but you guys might be changing my mind. The Calamine lotion works pretty good.

Clothes Can Cause Rashes
by: Fungus amungus

Another strange thing I have learned is that allergies to clothing are common. Try to only allow cotton or silk to come into contact with the skin. Many synthetics are latex based and a lot of people become allergic to latex over time.

Rash
by: Itchy Bitch

I have it also. I first get it under my breast, always on left side. I know now not to scratch it. It takes a bit, but the rash eventually fades. As soon as it fades from there it flares up on my belly and always on the left side of belly button. As it fades it appears on the back of my right thigh. The rash is extremely itchy!

The first time it happened the doctor thought I had sand fleas from putting down a large patio on a bed of sand. I haven't touched sand since.

It has been about 15 years now and it flares up every summer when it gets really humid. I spray an itch medicated spray on it which stops the itch as it gives a frozen sensation to the skin.

Wish I knew what it was.

Absorbine Jr
by: Mr Miller

The best treatment for fugi rash is dry dry and dry, cool cool and cool. The fugi love heat and moisture therefore avoid creams. Wash area with soap and tempered water. Dab area dry with a disposable towel. This may sting a little. Apply Absorbine Jr. (acetone) to the rash. Leave it on until the stinging stops. Dab the area dry, then apply Zeasorb anti-fungal powder. Repeat this 2 or 3 times a day. The rash will turn a darker red and dry up in a few days. It is a fungus. Fungi can live on objects for about a year. Wash towels after ever shower, change bed sheets every day until the rash is gone. Avoid skin contact with non clean clothing.

I've had it too.
by: Anonymous

I had something similar. It's got some latin name, which I don't remember. My doctor gave me an antibiotic and it cleared within a month. It does come back however. I seem to get it about once every 18 months.

What is the rash?

Did you find out what this was? I have almost exactly the same thing and I also thought it was from medication.
