Skin rash
An_248097 posted:
My son (age 4) has a rash on his stomach/back, bottom, and legs. We currently moved overseas, and don't have easy accessible health care. The rash is in a circular pattern that started on his back. He has taken oral steroids for 5 days, no help with new patches showing up on legs, he has taken 7 days of fungal pills, no help. We have treated it like an allergy, antihistamine does reduce the itchiness and redness, but nothing substantial. This has been going on a good 4 weeks.
