rash won't go away
husband has a rash that is relentless.  it started with bronchitis  treated with cipro and prednisone and a steroid cream.  the bronchitis is fine, but the rash is ongoing.  he has patch test scheduled for monday, then return on wed to remove patches, then go back friday for results.  he cannot use steroids, or antihistamines, etc. so as not to affect patch test.  this all started on his trunk area.  like measles, then the patches came...large areas of red angry spots.  we are using sarna lotion for itching, but he is miserabable.  changed to all free.  uses dove soap.  baby shampoo.  we are wondering if our derm is missing something.  this is really begninning to grate on his nerves.  sleep is sporadic.  did culture when he had bronchitis and he had staph aureus.  treated that.   that was on foot and it is healed.  then a biopsy from thigh, but inconclusive.  derm says, some sort of contact problem.  am i crazy in thinking this cannot be so hard to diagnose?  please help....we are at our wits end.  thank you.
