Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Can you post a picture of the skin on this page ?
That would be helpful
Well I advise that you see a dermatologist.. the appearance in much regard reminds me of a condition > erythrasma >that is caused by a bacterial infection but the location is not typical for that..
If Erythrasma it would fluoresce coral red under a Wood's lamp ( blacklight) and may respond to erythromycin for 14 days
Econazole cream may be a good option for treatments that topical cream is both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial as well .....
I think that you need close exam and may benefit from supportive testing ..
I think that this rash would benefit from the right antibiotic treatment and possibly along with a steroid cream...
Such combination should clear it up within 1 to 2 weeks for you..
I hope that this information is helpful for you.
Let me know if you have further questions and I will be happy to get back with you!

Yes I think that treatment will clear the condition and that you will be rid of it...
Office visit to a dermatologist may run $125 - $150 but that can vary > call office for usual charge first visit routine visit
You are very welcome!
