    If it is in the forbidden areas...you need to go see a doctor immediately.

    no, it's on my stomach. It's actually from a medication. I'll just hang in there for now.

    Benadyrl, have you tried that, it works on most inside out induced rashes!

    You should never mix hydrocortosone with other medications unless advised by a doctor as it may cause more problems.

    A rash can be caused by so many different things that consulting a doctor is always the best first step.

    Even soap/detergent can cause a rash on some people.  And sometimes it's not a rash it's from scratching something else such as a bite from a parasite or insect.

    The fact that it doesn't go away seems good reason to consult a nurse or doctor.

    Rash is a sign of detoxification. You should drink plenty of clear water. And what is also very good help is XanGo juice. I can only encourage you to drink two sips of it daily for at least 3 months. I'll like to help you get it.

    Well, if you have itching while sleeping and you are suffering from sleepless nights due to itching, try applying some alcohol on the area before going to bed. It is not a permanent cure but can give a great relief.

    Check with an advice nurse or your doctor but benadryl is always a good option.

    Definitely go to the doctor to see what the cause is. 

    For temporary relief try Burow's solution or Domeboro (which is the same thing when mixed with water).

    I'd suggest a naturopath to "peel the skins of the onion back" and not add to it with a bandaid effect adding more layers to, the onion being you and the layers are the sickness/illness/
    Adding more creams, lotions, potions are not going to help as you say its from a certain medication, I would seek out a naturpath to help you heal your physical and mental at the same time maybe with some homoeopathic/vibrational medicine , it heals so subtly that it is fantastic way to cure an illness.
    Best wishes!

    Go see an allergist. It's probably something that can be treated with an anitihistimene (sp), eucerine and possibly a topical oitment/ cream like betamethasone.

    try putting clop-e cream, but show it to a doctor before or try to put this cream on a small spot and see, my friend applied that cream which just killed his skin problems 25 years long. you will be amazed to hear that.

    I lived with eczema for years before it was diagnose by my doctor during a prenatal check up. He recommend luke warm baths, ( Hot water and showers dry your skin), no soap bars at all, use a fragrance free moisture rich body wash, Lubriderm for extra dry skin mixed with a little petroleum after every bath, no scratching but if necessary use ice to scratch. Also laundry detergent with out fragrances. , possible food and pet allergens .

    Put a small amount of oat meal on it for like a half an hour or an hour once a day. It calms the skin and will help draw toxins out...unless your allergic to it...then try some mud.

    While internet diagnoses can be helpful in some situations, often times it is best to see a medical doctor. If the problem persists seek the advice of a dermatologist.

    all you have to do is go to your doctor and see what he/she say.

    You ought to speak to your physician very, very soon, Schoolgirl. It could be an allergy to a medication, since you mention you're using one. You don't want the rash to get worse.

    Try "Cornhusker's Lotion". It's a really great product and it hydrates the skin quickly.  It works for me when most things will not.  Just keep applying it for a couple of days and you should see some relieve. WB

    It's been 2 days now. I believe your rash has gone away. However, you know? don't take any chance here in any medical issues, just run to a doctor.

    Sounds like an internal issues, maybe you need to wash it out so that it won't continuously come to the surface of your skin
