what starts off like a pin ****k ,turnes into a saw the size of a teaspoon top and rather deep.inside is a white sinue ,sometimes down or across the saw.i have to dig into the saw and with a blade cut out the white sinue like thing for the saw to heal that takes never less than 7-10 weeks. then leaves a ugly white scare that in time flairs up again and a saw starts.it is all over the boddy but worse on the arms and legs.i have been for all kinds of tests with no outcome of recovery.i have been doing research myself for the past 7 jears but still come up with no cure or couse.

  • Get a blood test for syphilis. You need some serious intervention and lab work, along with scrapings of the sores.

  • i'm glad you're feeling better, but the medication they put you on for depression is only a quick fix - it won't last. Your depression and skin problems are part of a bigger problem... Mystery in the skin:http://www.feb.se/articles/ollej.html www.antennasearch.com dear blaze: Thank you for you post .I just want to let you know i took you advice , when you said that depression medication was a quick fix and while i was feeling better went to a phycitian ,all the right tests were done, now i do finaly have a diagnose = ( sle )-systemic lupus enythematosus .Many thanks ! I did take depression to be my final diagnose at the time ,i was feeling better and the skin was clearing .It how ever was not the cause . And that is what one must deal with to get better . Thanks again charmaine

  • Well, some of us are only guessing, but if you've been to a dermatologist, I don't know. But it looks like something is positive. Get them to explain it. Did you ever get checked for Morgellons?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgellons
