Initially I've had a rash on my left side of scrotum which then spread to the right side. Then I started to get bumps on the inside of my groin. Now small bumps appear on my arms and now to the side of my fingers, some with small black dots in the center. I have been seen by my doctor who prescribed Permethrin, which I used 4 days ago with no relief. I have used an air purifier and allergy detergent to clean all clothes and blankets to rule out an allergic reaction. Ive been taking loratadine 10mg during the day and benadryl 25mg at night to help with symptom relief.

bumps are itchy. Attached is a picture of my right inner thigh. The bigger bump is one that I scratched and then looked like that. Also, attached is a picture of small bumps on the sides of my fingers.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Here is my right leg and left groin.
Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Thanks for these pics --helpful.

This is likely due to a type of eczema.

Dyshidrotic eczema is likely given the predilection in the sweat prone areas.

This will require a potent steroid ointment.

Triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% ointment twice daily for 2 weeks will work better.

Definitely not an infection.

Best wishes

Do any of these bumps look fungal to you? I know a possible diagnosis from my doctor was to treat with anti fungal creams.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Here is a picture of my right scrotum.
Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

No it is not a fungal infection.

Hence that will not work.

You should see a dermatologist ideally.

And you should request your doctor to prescribe you triamcinolone acetonide 0.1% ointment meanwhile.

Best wishes

Also, small red bumps are also on my legs and forearms which are not sweat prone areas. Is it normal for dyshidrotic eczema to spread throughout the body? Thanks
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Here is a picture of more bumps on my hand.
Health Professional: Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist replied 2 years ago

Yes they are --in fact more common on palms.

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!!
