i cant get rid of this skin rash for over 6months

9118544?1368741992
So i've had this skin rash since November of 2012. It's located on the inside of my elbows on each arm. But nowhere else. It just appeared out of nowhere and i cant get rid of it. Ive been to the dr. twice and neither time helped. Both times he prescribed new medication but neither of them helped in the long run. They started to, but never got rid of it all together. any type of hydrocortisone cream that ive tried has just made it worse. When it gets really bad, the rash gets inflamed, and really red. Sometimes it feels dry and itchy, but not always. Anyone have any advice?

You need water at the temperature 45c to 48 c Shower or bath the effected area and rub the water over the skin to continually break the surface tension of the water so that the right temperature touches the skin. At least 2 times a day and use natural beez wax ointment after each treatment.
Use a safe thermometer don't  go over 49c .

Yes... a beeswax, jojoba lotion, cream or ointment helps lichen planus.  It might be what you have.  It seems to help the dry skin and the rash both.
