Customer Question
My son has had...

My son has had this rash on his neck for 7 months. They treated it as ringworm and it got better with oral and topical mess. Now it's getting worse again and it never fully went away.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Are you experiencing any numbness or tingling?

Not that we are aware of and it does not itch. I have a pic but now sure how to insert it. It's been going on and off for like 7 months

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. It just seems to be around the neck where the shirt rubs

Does this itch him?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
It says it does not itch. It's like where his shirt rubs. They treated it for ring worm with oral antifungal meds and cream and it got a little better but never went away fully. It has a spot on other side of his neck but not as bad as that one.
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

This doesn't look at all like ringworm or any other kind of fungal skin infection

It looks more like a type of allergic dermatitis--possibly from the shirt rubbing there

I would go about treating it with a course of oral prednisolone and topical triamcinolone cream

Please let me know if you need any more information

I need to take him to a doctor for these medicine? Anything I can buy over the counter to help?
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

You can try over the counter 1% hydrocortisone cream and topical Caladryl lotion and that might clear it up

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
