Rash

I am allergic to elastic and sometimes wearing panties with the elastic edge gives me a line of red itchy bumps. It goes away after a night with all cotton panties on.
The other day I had a bathing suit on most all day. I was itchy and when I showered I noticed a rather large rash going up and down my cheeks on both sides like a line with several red splotches. However it has not gone away after two days. There is no white or anything just red bumps and they just on the ends of my cheeks.
Not sexually active, just wondering if anyone knows anything. [I] am thinking this is from the elastic bottoms I had on all day. Help

Re: Rash

Try some hydrocortisone cream, or the stuff guys use for jock itch. Calamine lotion should work, too.

I simply don't like the elastic in panties so i get those boyshorts, Hanes makes them.
