I am 29 year old female, have been treated for a rash on my leg about 6 or 8 places as a fungus by my dermatologist, it has now spread to my other leg, a few on my chest and one on my back. I also had a white patch on my big toe nail, which has now grown out but seems to have asmall black dot on the nail. I insisted on biopsy, they say it is lymphocytic vasculitis. Can this just occur, what is the prognosis, does it go away. My general practitioner did blood work, waiting on results. I am really afraid and worried. I have two children a 3 and 1 year old.

Optional Information:
Gender: female
Age: 29

Already Tried:
Steroid creme prescribed by my dermatologist. I also noticed while a recnt visit to Florida Keys, while in the saltwater the patches on my leg dissppeared.
