I have rash spreading through my body?

I am a healthy 33 year old with no known allergies or diseases and I workout daily. About 10-12 days ago, I felt itchy between my breasts and thought nothing of it. About 2 days later, I had a full blown rash all over my belly, back, shoulders, chest, and breasts. I went to immediate care the next day and all she did was take a look and prescribed me amoxicillian. 3 Days after that, the rash was not getting better and appeared to be spreading more so I got an appointment with a general doctor and he had no clue what it could be so he prescribed me Hydroxyzine, Methylpredinsolone, and Triamcinolone. Now here I am, 4 days later and still no improvement and appears to be spreading even more into my groin area. It is more itchy in the evenings. I am worried that it may be a systemic problem and I don’t like that these doctors are just trying to treat the systems instead of doing tests to find the underlying problem. Would you be able to help? The rash appears to be irregular shaped, varying in sizes, biggest spot is about the size of a quarter. It is light pink to light red in color. I have not been in contact with anything unusual, no new foods, no new soap or shampoo or lotion.

hi
i feel this is a skin infection.
take anti-histaminic tablets and apply local anti fungal steroid based creams.
Taking antifungal tablets will help to heal it faster.
see a dermatologist if symptoms do not improve.
Thanks

HI
ECZEMA SEEMS TO BE MORE LIKELY.
TAKE ANTI ALLERGIC TABLETS AND APPLY STEROID CREAMS LOCALLY. GET BLOOD TESTS DONE FOR ALLERGENS AND BLOOD COUNTS TO RULE OUT INFECTION.

hello there
a widespread contact dermatitis is a more likely cause.
something in the surrounding is irritating the skin and you need to find it out.
local anti allergic creams and steroid tablets will help it reduce.
consult a dermatologist

Well drugs prescribed to you and did not help you will however help me diagnose you since you did not upload a picture , they roled out bacterial infection and allergy
You now have only 2 possibilites
1 -fungal infection
2- viral infection

In my opinion you have a fungal infection which is common in athletes
Take Fungisafe cream
Twice a day
Flucoral capsule 150mg
2 capsules together once every week for 2 weeks

Good Luck

Hi and thanks for posting your question doctors
If I have to give a diagnosis for your case then I would ask for some labs before going further..
blood tests such as antinuclear antibody (ANA), to look for lupus, complete blood count (CBC), liver function tests (LFT) to look for rashes related to hepatitis, and thyroid function tests.
Then you can see a dermatologist to see the results so you can get the right treatment.
