Hi and thanks for the query.
This is not a rash due to anemia. Anemia means a deficiency of red blood cells and that does not present with such a rash. It presents with pale skin and other signs and symptoms and the best way to confirm it is by having a full blood count test done.
The rash you have as seen is the picture is a macular rash that is commonly seen in atopic dermatitis and friction or heat rash.
I would suggest that you start on an anti allergic like Cetrizine twice a day.
Apply Hydrocortisone 1 percent gel over the rash.
And ask your PCP for a Full blood count test if you are worried about anemia.
Hope this helps.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Best wishes.
