Hi,

I was wondering if I could get some advice.

For ten years now I have had a reoccurring itchy skin, happens every few months and once I break out it lasts for 10-14 days for the rash to disappear!

The rash is very very hard to see and always appears symmetrical under both arm pits and between my legs, never on one leg or one arm!

I have been diagnosis with Dermatitis and poor liver function, I use Eleuphrat cream which help control the break when it occurs!

I guess I have exhausted all medical options; I've done a billion blood tests, most of the time the doctor diagnosis me with folliculitis! (Wrong)

However can I prevent this or take special tests, it is so painful being this agitated all the time, I play rugby union and often I run off the field with broken toes or broken noses and nothing is more painful than my skin! Help!

Any ideas?
