And your description of the rash? What lotions have you tried?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.


it is not a sweat rash it only feels similar , no swelling just burning


Expert:  Dr Chip (M.D.) replied 6 years ago.
Some possibilities--a fungal infection, folliculitis (hair follicle infection) or an allergic reaction or eczema. I'd suggest Lamisil cream three times a day for a week and if that didn't help, you might need antibiotics for this. An antihistamine like benadryl may help with the burning. No antiperspirants or deoderants for now.

OK--but a rash is a visible sign, so I'm a little unclear what you meant by what you just said?
