A member of my family has been diagnosed with Cutaenous Mastocytosis. They have been seen at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonvillve, and had many tests / samples taken none of which contained anything other than Cutaenous Mastocytosis. No doctors to this point have been able to help or treat this condition. They have tried Antihistimines and Gastrocrom. Nothing has helped so far, do you know of any doctor that specifically treats this rare disorder? Thanks!
You are correct that mastocytosis, in which the skin is infiltrated with many mast cells that release histamine and other chemicals, is rare. No doctor or clinic's name in particular springs to mind. Certainly the folks associated with Mayo would know what to try. I suggest you get in touch with patient support groups for this condition for tips on treatments people have tried and physicians they have consulted. One place to start is the Mastocytosis Society at http://www.mastocytosis.com/, but I'm sure a web search will turn up others.
Sorry I can't be more specific. I've never seen a case myself.
