Rash On My Lower Back
I have a strange rash on my lower back.
In Hawaii I was bitten by mosquitoes on my mid-lower back. There were four bites, and now it appears I have a spreading rash (3 inches in diameter) where the bites used to be.
I have applied cortisone cream to the area but it is still very itchy and the bumps seem to be spreading, almost like little hives.
I have had these for 2 weeks now and do not know what they are.
If you are sure that it WAS mosquitoes that bit you in Hawaii and not something else, then I would guess the rash on your lower back could be from one of two things.
1. The mosquitoes were carrying something that has caused this sensitivity to flare up.
2. While scratching the mosquito bites after the fact, you inadvertently infected the skin with something on your fingers, under your nails, etc.
Here are two simple topical solutions you can try to get rid of this skin rash as quickly as possible.
- If you have an aloe vera plant handy, break a piece off and rub the gel inside the plant on the rash several times per day.
- If you have organic apple cider vinegar (cloudy and unfiltered/undistilled), apply the ACV to the rash several times per day.
I would also highly recommend that you take some good probiotics (acidophilus, etc.) for a couple of weeks just to build up the good/friendly bacteria in your system. If you don't have any on hand, I'd suggest Florafood
. This will help ward off the infection from the inside out. To your good health!
