I presently have a handful of itchy rashes. They began several years ago, I believe in the groin area or eye area. Now I have itchyness/rashes in my groin area, anus area, one armpit, eyelids, in and around my ears. Many years ago I mentioned the initial rash to a doctor and he gave me some small samples of Elocon. This would get rid of the rashes pretty quickly, but the rashes would come back. Years later(about 2 years ago) I went to the doctor again and he sent me to the derm. The derm really had no clue and prescribed me mometasone furoate and desonide ointment. He said to use the desonide in regards to my eyes because its a milder steroid.
Well, the cremes seem to help but it always comes back and the cremes seem less effective over time. ANY ideas on what the root cause may be?
Some other possibly useful information: about a year before this all I had a ruptured appendix. It was ruptured for awhile before I went to the ER and I was in the hospital awhile afterwards. Lots of antibiotics. I developed bad stomach cramping/pain afterwards. I started taking a multivitamin and probiotics and that issue went away. Awhile after that the rashes began(from what I remember).
I thought at one point it was candida, tried multiple things for candida with no results. Later talked to somebody that actually had candida and learned that I was missing some more pronounced symptoms of candida.....so maybe I was way offbase with that one. I have also tried countless moisterizers, cortizone, anti-fungas, and anti-yeast creme's.
I started weight training alittle over a year ago and have been trying to eat better, as well as trying numerous supplements related to general health. Nothing has effected my itchy rashes.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
