User avatar Hi Fieryglazer,

I'm a bit perplexed by this. There are many things that can cause red patches but I can't think of one that also causes numbness.

I would suggest you see your doctor for a direct evaluation. With rashes this really is the best way to get a proper diagnosis since so much of this relies on seeing the characteristics of the rash.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Best wishes.
