Good evening, thank you for contacting us this evening.
I am sorry to see that you have this rash - how long have you had this? and have you tried anything for it so far?
Thanks, ***** ***** did it first start, and to which areas has it spread to?
Okay thank you. So it does appear a little like Pityriasis Rosea. This is self limiting but can last up to 6 weeks. The mainstay management of this is a regular emollient/moisturiser, a topical steroid for itchy areas and also a oral antihistamine.
Not necessarily, I would however use an oral antihistamine regularly for a week or two.
If you think it is spreading more or becoming more intense, there is a possibility of a infection which may require antibiotics.
Please have a look at this link to read more into it.
For the antihistamine you can get this without a prescription. The antibiotic would however require a prescription.
If you use the Daktarin and you feel it is improving the rash then please continue if for a few weeks, if not, I would stop this.
No, this is not contagious.
Ringworm looks different to this and does not tend to be a widespread. Daktarin would also be a treatment for ring worm.
Please do not worry. This is how this works.
No worries, why not use Clotrimazole on some of it for a few days and see if it improves. This is another treatment for ringworm.
Okay, I think this excludes that this is ring worm.
That is my pleasure. I hope this all settles for you soon.
