Hello! I've been experiencing a weird skin rash. It started as little patches of red spots on my chest, then extended to my tummy and few on my back. I had them for 2 weeks and then I had a sudden, over night flare up on my face ( really red skin, very itchy, sore, dry and patchy). I've been using anti fungal topical creams and it bettered the face a bit but i see no improvement on the rest of the body. Actually it spread even more to my legs, and now they are covered in red spots. I suspected fungal infection since i've always had toenail fungal infections and some bits on the face are kind of circular. And some spots on the body have dry, flakey texture and some don't. What could be the cause? I've been experiencing this for almost 3 weeks now.
What is happening with my body??

I've always had acne problems on my face but i can clearly see that what i have now it's rash and they are not pimples even though some red bumps look like blemishes. But mostly is just red patches of skin that look dry and old.

Also, the rash on my face is focused on the cheeks, nose and the lower part of the forehead. These parts are always red and flared up.
Have you seen your doctor? It sounds like it could be Herpes Zoster, that is also known as Shingles and causes sores like you described and they're very painful. If you do have Shingles, promptly seeking medication from a doctor is rather urgent.
It could be something else entirely but your symptoms require someone to physically see you to know for sure what the issue is.
