Hi doctor, just to set my 'paranoia' at ease....do skin rashes always indicate the presence of a disease? even if it doesn't itch?? I'm just worried I might have an std or cancer or something..

Cat, it doesn’t have to be a sign of something serious underlying, but no rash is normal. I can tell you that it is seldom a sign of an underlying STD or cancer. Good luck.
