Rash on my Right Side
I would say it is right on the site where a belt would be worn. I do not wear belts. It itches terribly. It stops itching for a few hours when I put the cream on but then it starts again. I have been putting cream on it for at least 5 days now. I am overweight so someone suggested that it is were the skin folds but I have never had anything like this before. I shower everyday so it is clean and dry... I cannot figure out what it is. I am trying to avoid going to the doctor since I just lost my job.

Yeah I would say it is ring shaped ... kind of oblong actually. If it does not go away by the end of this week I will make an appointment at the doctor.

Thank you for your advice muhamad I really do appreciate it.
