I have a red pimply...
I have a red pimply rash on my surgical leg which seems to be spreading up and down my leg. It started on my knee. It is very itchy and I have been using Benadryl and hydrocortisone cream. I began having this rash 5 days ago. 10 days ago, I had been treated for a vaginal infection with two fluconazole pills. Before that, I had been experiencing itchy skin with on my hands and feet but no rash 21 days ago. Could this be related to Candida and can I know for sure?

One question--did you have chickenpox as a child?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question

This isn't a fungal/yeast rash

I looks like a classical shingles outbreak and one can only get that if one has had chickenpox in the past

For now topical over the counter capsaicin cream can help with it

But I suggest you let your doctor look at it so he can give you a prescription for oral acyclovir that will treat it quickly

Please let me know if you need any more information

Can shingles be present without pain?

They can definitely itch and not be extremely painful

Ok. Do you think that I can wait until Monday to see a doctor or should I go to the emergency room?

No need for the ER--Monday is fine

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
