Got itWhat have you tried on it so far? Anything topical- like an antifungal cream?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not put anything on it didnt really know what it was so didnt know what was the best thing to go for
Expert:  TheGermDoctor replied 1 year ago.
This may be a fungal rash- the first thing I would try is an antifungal cream- that you can get over the counter in any pharmacy. I suspect that is the most likely, based on the appearance.If that does not work, the next step may be to do a small skin biopsy to make an alternate diagnosis- there are several inflammatory conditions of the skin- forms of eczema- that can look similar- and that would be my second though.I hope that helpsPLease supply a rating if this answers your question

Yeah it is more reasuring everything you see on google just basically tells you yeah youve got cancer your going to die and i just needed some sort of resurance to make sure it wasnt anything serious thank you ill try find time to get some cream
Expert:  TheGermDoctor replied 1 year ago.
It does not look like cancer, and cancer does not develop that fastTry the cream first- if not resolving, I'd say see a dermatologist for a more careful in person examinationPlease supply a ratingThanks and good luck
