What is this rash?

Edited , 1 user is following.



This rash has been on the side of my breast/near armpit for a week now - have spoken to a pharmacist who says its likely fungal. But it's not itchy - which I assumed yeast/fungal infections normally are?

I've been applying a steroid cream and sudocrem which seems to bring it down. It's completely flat, not raised, a little bit scaly but not massively. Doesn't itch. Gets lighter/fades and then may get worse again.

I have health anxiety so I can't say whether the physical symptoms I've had (cold flashes/weakness in limbs) are related to it or just in my head.
