Small Raised Red Bumps Skin Rash

by Anonymous

I play rugby professionally which requires me to train daily. After I train/play a rash develops on my torso, under armpits, around the neck, and on my forehead. The rash on my forehead seems to come as a result of the protective headgear that I wear and the rash on my body only appears to be in places where the skin has been rubbing against training/playing clothing. I have tried barrier creams like Sudocrem but none seem to fully do the job. I don't know if it is some sort of heat rash, which is aggravated by the rubbing against clothing materials. The rash itself is small raised red bumps which are very itchy. The rash on my forhead, if scratched, will develop into a state of producing 'pus', suggesting that it may be getting infected. This problem is at its worst in the wet, cold winter months.

Any help would be really appreciated. It is causing me so much distress and uncomfortableness.

Similar Problem
by: Anonymous

My husband is suffering from a similar problem. At first, we thought it might be a fungal thing, so he started using an athlete's foot cream. But it didn't seem to help and it's spread now throughout his whole armpit and starting to work its way around to his back. He also has spots around his hips, about where his pants sit. The spots almost look like chicken pox and are very itchy. After scrubbing in the shower, he says that makes it itch worse. We thought it also might be caused by his deodorant, but then why would he also have spots on his hips? He bought a new deodorant, hypoallergenic, and is going to the doctor on Friday to see if they can tell him anything different. Will post something if we get an answer!

Try this

Is there any chance that, except for your forehead, laundry detergent could be the cause? You might try a detergent for babies and/or run the rinse cycle twice.
