chicken skin rash

hi doc

I have a rash on my upper arms, abdominal area and all over my back in scattered clumps. the rash looks like chicken skin and it itches occasionally. I first noticed it about 3 weeks ago and thought it would go away. is it something that i should worry about? could it be related to allergies as i suffer from seasonal allergies?

Hallo Jay
It could be a fungal infection, let a pharmacist or doctor have a look at the rash. A proper diagnosis is necessary to decide on the correct medication needed.
