Good morning, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today.
Are you able to provide a photo of this rash please?
Thank you. How long have you had this rash please?
Is it itchy or painful?
Thanks, ***** ***** itchy or painful?
And what medication have you tried?
Okay thanks, ***** ***** does appear as an allergy response. And given that it is itchy I would suggest this is the case.
So your options over the counter would be to try Cetirizine tablet which is a daily anti histamine, and also a topical steroid, Hydrocortisone. Both of these you can get from a pharmacy without a prescription.
Hopefully this will keep you going until you are able to have this reviewed by your doctor.
Sorry for the delay in my response. No I do not think this is something serious, it looks like a local reaction.
It could be, if so, it would be caused by some damage/dryness to the skin, and inflammation can appear from this.
I do hope so, best of luck.
