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 .
