Hello, Welcome Jhellokitty,
I have a rash in the same places. I do not trust prescription solutions. It was suggested (not by an MD of allopathic disciplines but an orthomolecular nutritionist), the cause of my back and leg red bump rash may be from a fungal parasite which burrowed in after months of imbalance overlooked. It was recommended to have a Candida test since that condition could be a cause.
In the mean time, to sooth the fire it produces, I put a large white washcloth into the back strap of my long handled bath brush (brush under $5 at any drug store) and apply a 'personal mix' of pure cocoa butter lotion infused with some drops of peppermint essential oil. I install this mix into a soap pump to apply to the rag-on-a-stick in those hard to reach places. The cocoa butter is moisturizing and the peppermint is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-microbial to heal any deep tearing from abrasions of scratching and cool the fire of the red rash. Never apply an essential oil solo directly to the body internally or externally. The peppermint intensity is like salt -to taste.
The Candida is a natural part of the body ecology in the digestive tract- not beyond in large colonies but body friend, normally. It lives for removing dead cells much like a catfish on the bottom of a pristine lake or a crab on the ocean floor. When things go haywire as in does in gut imbalance issues, cause it, like wheat intolerance, IBS, and Celiac Disease, also man induced, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and multiple other causes both mild to sever.
This once friendly 'micro gut life'... changes and spreads to other areas of the body. The lab testing for it is often inconclusive, because it is in the body all the time, just not in the aggressive altered state. The control is near impossible by MD standards as the antibiotic (the leading choice for bacterial and fungal parasite eviction is 'the antibiotic' protocol), Candida is in the yeast-fungus class of micro life). Strict diet changing from yeast foods and sugars and simple carbohydrates has had some winning results but may return when the guard is dropped.
An addition, natural supplements can assist with the stricter diet. Anyway, see my blog for further ideas and Candida and outside the gut of Systemic Candida issues. See blog... www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_
Celiac patients do have more than one condition, because the system is weakened.
If your rash is due to gut imbalance Candida is there. If it is not then know this much to help others since everyone has this gut friendly life, and thousands die every year from complications of it. Restore order to the gut life; kill off the altered life in other areas of the body, discover the potential causes and try to control and prevent further out breaks with friendly gut flora (billions per day to start), better nutrition to fight off wrong life-wrong place and good healing; Good Luck. If it is found to be one of the gut imbalance issues caught early, it can mean easy cure. Never corrected is an 'all too common' sign of progressive weakness. Never or insufficiently corrected or only attempted to correct, leads to pneumonia from the body fighting 24/7. Hospital death by thousands happens to people every year, although, they claim it is the secondary viral pneumonia not fungal version to take life. The trusty MDs in hospitals never corrected this imbalance in the past generations. Modern research and winning techniques are better.
I lovingly hope they learn the vital tree steps to safe lives; 1) learn to find the definitive, conclusive testing to find the altered life version of a friend turn fiend (research is being conducted in Stanford University Hospital in California, they discovered the altering factors). 2) Learn to kill it not us along with it (success has been achieved by natural supplements of months and months accompanied by corrective diet. This has worked for immune compromised patients, like a heart surgery patient on heavy antibiotic programs). And 3) teach us preventative steps to curb a 'gut fiend' of systemic wandering corrected back to gut friend. Good luck and good hunting! I diet strictly all the time. I must because one 12 month antibiotic program and gut imbalance undiagnosed forces me to take the known steps, the MDs never did, and I use lotion as needed with soothing bug-killing skin healing naturopathic results. Test first, then use intelligent choices to correct what is correctable.
The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
