Thanks for info ...

Rash specifically around buttocks with recent history of flu is most likely viral and in this case it would be ideal to keep eye on it as it can spread , it would be good to apply Hydrocortisone cream to overcome inflammation .

This need symptomatic treatment , right now no specific treatment is needed .

Application of Calamine lotion at bed time will be very effective .

Please proceed as I advised you so that she get relief .

Regards .
