My husband has a rash which he treated with corticosteriods and Lotrimin without any effect. The areas are raised circles with flat tops. It doesn't look like ringworm. It does itch. He's been tested for diabetes but that came back negative. He's unable to find an allergen at work or at home. What else could it be? Please give any feedback possible.

  • I suggest you search for dermatitis herpetiformis and see if you can relate to it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dermatitis_herpetiformis#Symptoms

  • I've had a rash with red circular itchy spots. I looked up scabbies and I thought about flea bites. They seem to have a core (when they've been scratched, and scabbed) I thought it was going away and then it got itchy again and I scratched. I thought eczema....at any rate I used a lotion I found in the baby section of the grocery that works for 24 hrs and said it helped eczema and it seems to be helping.
