Looked like bug bites at first

About three days ago I woke up with what I thought was bug bites on my hip bone/pubic bone area. It was also on my butt right along the crack but not in it. As the day went on the "bites" started looking more like a red rash with small welts in it. The next day I noticed that there were the "bites" on my side/hip which is now starting to look like the other rashes. Today there were more "bites" on my top inner thigh were the elastic of my underwear hits. It's itchy but benadril takes care of that. At first I was putting a prescription steroid cream for poison ivy on it and no I've been putting hydrocortizone cream on it. Neither seems to make a difference. I don't know if this is of any importance but I do have a ringworm on my thigh about four inches below the rash that I noticed about a week before the rash that I've been treating with lamasil. I have no idea where I could have gotten a ringworm or if it has anything to do with the rashes but it is very, very hot and humid where I live so maybe I am more prone to get things like ringworms. Any input, advice or theories would be helpful. Thank you.

Hi, my husband had similar symptoms as you. He had little bites then a rash then welt and some blisters. He went to the er and the said the are flea bites. We have NO fleas. I checked for bed begs, none. He then we to his dr. He said it was a rash here is some cream. He went again and now it was fugus, more cream. Back to the dr. now its scabies, Premethin lotion. Now scabies is highly cantagious but I don't have them. Its been over 3 month and he is healing. His whole body was covered with scabs from itching. He tried benedryl and vistral. Oh, we just went to the dr last week and now they say it was a reaction to his muscle relaxers. He had 3 biopsies also. Show nothing. So we do not know what he has. I hope they can diagose you and for you to get better fast! Good luck!
