I have a skin condition that has been w/ me since about 2005. It appears as a rash of sorts or even a couple of pimples but you know what is coming. Very soon it will turn into a large area of liquid filled pimples or boils although small. Very itchy and sometimes extremely painful in the area of 10. I had a appendix burst for three days and it just felt like a stomach ache. This stuff hurts. I has even morphed a bit in that at times it will, (by the way these episodes will last for as long as a year or more, the current one I've had for over a year and a half) seem to affect large areas with what seems to be a reservoir of ffluid and if not drained ouch. The most current episode I am dealing with now is on the back of my head. If not dealt with for about an hour two to three times a day it will cause headaches due to the pressure of the fluid. I can at times make my whole back of the head wet by rubbing the skin from the neck up. As this is being done I can feel what seems to be individual pores opening up and draining out. They may drain a little or a very large area maybe 2 x 2 inches or more of fluid and you can feel it draining. The larger the area the more pain. Sometimes the pain will come on really quick and pointed as in once again a single pore or folical. The fluid is really wet like water but a bit oily or waxy and dries sticky waxy. I've had this on my ears, around the mouth, on the arms, and once on my chest. I've been tested for mercury, arsenic, lead poisoning, shingles and cancer via a biopsy. I was diagnosed w/ foliculitus yet the treatment did nothing. It seems to have the ability to fight back in that if you treat it with some saves or ointments or the like even aloe vera, it will produce more blisters really fast right under the ones you are bursting. At times you will find yourself getting through a laver or the small ones and find a really big reservoir underneath. This stuff is weird. Any thoughts? I'm about tired of spending 3 hours a day plus dealing with this and it's becoming rather debilitating in that if you don't spend the time draining them and they must be rubbed w/ scrubbers or fingers or something in the shower, you aren't going anywhere because the itch and annoyance is total. Thanks for reading this, look forward to hearing what may come of it. Yours, Doug Horvath
