Could you attach the photo?

Thank you for the image

The concern in the description that you porovided in the initial question would be whether this represented a fungal infection of the skin. The image does not demonstrate an appearance that would be suggestive of a fungal infection, but it does not appear that dramatic on the image. An option that can be done by your doctor would be to scrape the rash and look at the scraping under the microscope to look for evidence of a fungus. If you are trying to avoid going to your doctor, you could try an over the counter anti-fungal, such as Lotrimin, to see if it helps the rash.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
