Customer Question

I have a red patch on my left buttocks that now has raised white pimples. I thought something like an ant may have bitten me. It itches. I am trying natural remedies like castor oil, eucalyptus oil as an ointment. The white pimples seem to be coming to a head. I'm 65 years old and never had this problem.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: Noticed the red spot two days ago. Nothing seems to make it worse.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I'm diabetic but it's controlled without meds. I take medication for hypothyroidism .
