Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I shall be trying my best to help you as much as I can. Could you please help me understand your problem by giving me the following details:

1) Are you using/ taking steroids for emphysema?

2) Is the rash itchy? Any oozing?

3) Any scales over the rash?

4) Any other symptoms/ significant medical conditions or significant past history?

4) Seen your doctor for this and what did he/she tell you? Any tests/ investigations?

Thanks. Shall be waiting for your reply.

l. Taking steroids - Aerobid ( I believe this is a steroid)

2. Itch at times with no oozing.

3. No scales over rash.

4. No other symptoms, and I have not seen a doctor.

Thanks for the additional details. Having gone through your descriptions, it seems like we have a problem termed “intertrigo”. Please have a look at this web resource which provides authentic details and might be helpful:

http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003223.htm

Besides discussing this problem with your doctor, maybe it will also be good if we discuss with our doctor about the steroid that is being used, and it will also help if we can get the blood sugar levels checked out to see if there is no diabetes.

I hope that this information helps answer your query. Please feel free to inquire if you have any remaining concerns/ doubts, as it shall be a privilege and a pleasure to try and help as much as I can. Best wishes.

I was wondering if you could recommend a medicine that I could get without a prescription that might be of help. Thank you.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
