Please can you tell me what this rash is, it is in my leg creases. I have had it since November 2018 and dermovate cream is not working, prescribed by my Gp. A dermotologist has ruled out Lichen schlerosus.
I am taking ramipril and duloxetine. I have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and occasionallly rosacea on my nose/face.
I attach a photo to show the rash

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to be sure without examining you in person but from your photograph I wonder if you might have a fungal infection? Can you ask you GP to try terbinafine cream?

I hope this is helpful.
