About a year and half ago I developed a red itching, burning rash on the back of my neck. It cleared up after a few months of hydrocort cream. Now the last 9 months I have gotten this rash on my face, underder my breast, belly and sides and on my buttocks. It itches really bad, it also burns and I get these little white puscules that ooze until it dries up. Now I have been to see my PCP and dermatologist and I get a different answer from both of them. Along with the rash I have started developing painful boils that come and go. Not only do I get boils but my skin literally slices open in the creases of my body. I have been on antibotics, creams and everything under the sun. I get a diagnosis of, eczema, adult acne, peridontal syndrome, etc. I really need to know what is wrong with me. I have been to two different skin doctors and nobody knows what is going on with my skin. Personally, I feel that it is something to do with my immune system and I can't anyone to listen to me. Help!!!
Without photo difficult but then I would think of DH- Dermatitis herpetiformis,bearing in mind the recurrent itchy papulo-pustules. This is said to be associated with gluten sensitivity. Biopsy essential.
