I am really getting desperate for some help and advice.

I am a 24 year old female who is constantly battling skin problems on my face and neck, i have had eczema as a child and still get this on my arms occasionally.

My symptoms are strange and i have been to see a dermatologist, immunologist, naturopath and massage for therapy and no-one has been able do diagnose my problem.

It usually starts in the morning or throught the day, i start getting a raised red rash on my face (near my pulses on the side of my face, above my lips, under my eyes and all over my neck and shoulders, it does not go any further than this but becomes very itchy and dry.

Antihistamines do not work, i am extremly Careful with what products i use and even medication will work for a little and then it just comes back worse.

I have tried to research so much but have hit a brick wall and just really want some help...

I am thinking that it could be from stress, people have mentioned NET chirporactors and rheuamotology (Sorry cant spell), does anyone have any suggestions as it is severly starting to effect my social and work life and i am getting depressed over it, would appreciate any opinions.

Thank you

  • Have you looked into Morgellon's disease? I have it. Countless have it. You may have it too. You can google info on it. It is real, regardless of how many docs label us as delusional. Hope this helps mommy cat

  • You may have PMLE (Polymorphous Light eruption) whiich is an allergy to light and or the sun. You would have to have a biopsy on the rash. I had this done from a small portion behind my ear and a dermatologist can do this. The bad news is there is not really much of a cure other than prevention of light exposure. Some say you can get photo light therapy which hardens the skin. I also was put on Minocyclin which helped a little. Good Luck and remember a rash is still a small price to pay to live on this planet.....hey at least you can still blog right? Good Luck
