Skin problem causing hair loss

I have had these outbreaks of inflammation and dark spots near my front hairline that turn grey-ish when I get in the shower or sweat dating back to 2009. I went to a dermatologist back in 2009 and he gave me some desonide and a Znp bar back in February of 2009. I had a biopsy completed in 2011. PAS stain came back negative for fungal hyphae with appropriate control.  Biopsy stated that it was Lichen simplex chronicus with post inflammatory pigmentary alteration. There was no evidence of a primary inflammatory process. It's been seven years and over time the spots have spread and progressively began to recede my hairline. Over the past 7 years I have seen 5 different dermatologists with no successful treatment plan.  Should I just give up and let nature just take it’s course doc. I have a laundry list of things I’ve used and taken listed below:

Itraconazole               100mg
Fluconazole               200mg
