Doctor

A:   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.

I understand your concern.
Such red colored rash may be due to various reasons -
1) Allergic rash- due to dust, dirt, new clothing, occupational exposure to the chemicals, medications etc
2) Infective causes- may include viral or bacterial mainly. If associated with fever then it is more likely possibility.
In such cases, treatment of the underlying infection is most important.
I will advise you to visit your doctor so that he can examine you and give you prescription accordingly.
You can share my opinion with him.

I hope it helps. Take care.
