4-5 Days ive had this rash. Its fairly spread

Customer Question

For about 4-5 Days ive had this rash. Its fairly spread around. Small red areas in isolated spots on my torso and back. A little on my chest and one on my upper thigh. I played sports all weekend and wasnt as hydrated as I should be. I was thinking heat rash but The areas do not itch or hurt. Its been about 4 days and they dont look to be getting worse but no significant subsiding either. Please see attached pictures.

Thanks for info ....This could be fungal infection called Tinea , as rash is not itchy and red areas in isolated spots need evaluation for Tenia infection .You may need oral prescription anti fungal pills for which you should go to your dr , so that appropriate treatment may be offered to you .Good luck .Please leave positive feedback for me .Thanks .
