Hello
Please attach a picture
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
This is just one spot
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 2 years ago.
OK
this looks like a fungal rash called tinea.
You need a magnified exam from your doctor to confirm this.
If this is the case,there is no home treatment, but you will need a prescription antifungal cream to eradicate this.
OK, so that is an initial answer….

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Would this rash be contagious? It started on my leg and spots popped up on my buttocks and now starting on my back
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 2 years ago.
These are generally not contagious, unless ringworm.
That can be tested for in the office.
