non healing lesions

for the past several years I have had lesions on my ears and scalp that start as pimple like bumps, itch, burst open and then turn into deep pitted scabby sores that don't heal.  I have seen 5 doctors, my rhuematologist and dermatologist I had a biopsy done and all that showed was inflamation (inflammation) and micro abcessing.  I have been told I "may" have discoid lupus, psoriasis, staph infection ...etc. every doctor has a different opinion and no medications seem to clear it up.  I took two weeks of antibiotics for staph infection which helped but never cleared the problem.  I now wash my scalp  with dexedin solution 2 x daily, this helps with the pain and scabbyness but never clears the problem.  Are there any specific tests I should be requesting from my dr's and any ideas on what can cause these symptoms?

thanks
