I have a rash that looks exactly like that. Instead of giving me anti-fungal cream he gave me hydrocortisone which has done nothing. Did you ever figure out what it was? If so would you please enlighten me

I have the same rash.  It started with one small spot about 2 months ago.  That spot got larger and within the last two week I have about 15 spots between both legs and buttocks.  Have any of you figured out what this is?

So what is the diagnosis from the doctor? I have the same thing and the doctor cannot figure it out. Is it mycosis fungoides?

My mother has had this same type rash for over 2 years now. Its strange and perplexing to the doctors she has been to (family practice, internal medicine and dermatology). Still unresponsive to any anti-fungal/antibacterial treatments, the spots tend to fade and reappear in new areas. Mostly found on torso:stomach and back, legs: thighs and shins. Please let me know if you found a treatment that has helped. Thanks and good luck to you.

Please give a follow up. I have the exact same thing on my legs.

Follow up please! I have the same thing and after 2 tubes of Lamisil still no relief. I am hesitant to take the anti fungal pills as they can be hard on your liver. Anyone have any treatments that worked for them?
