Rash after Florida vacation

In June 2012 I vacationedin new Smyrna Florida. I developed a rash across the small of my back. When I returned it started to spread. (it's been on my hands, elbows, legs and elsewhere. I've been to a dermatologist 5 times and 2 MDs. I've had 2 biopsies. Initially thought scabies. Treated whole family and environment 3 times! Ive used ivermectin and the scabies poison ointment - antibiotics - anti inflammatory creams and a long list of anti hystamines. I've read numerous notes about a mystery rash after a visit to Florida. (oh should add derm doc eventually said not scabies) I've never read about anyone getting a firm diagnosis -- it's been over 3 months. This is driving me crazy. Does anyone know another area I can research or have suggestions?
Thank you
