I have seen three different doctors and all three have different and confusing opinions. one thought it was fungal, yet did no tests and just gave me a cream that didn't work since it has progressively getting worst. Another just shrugged their shoulder and basically said "duhhh, I don't know." He then procceded to give me cream that did nothing. The other didn't really count because he was in the ER.

The rash reminds me of chicken pox but in a much smaller skale. They are little tiny bumps going up my arm and are mostly the same color as my skin. Some seem to have (I wan't to say "bursted") and are red. But they are tiny. There seem to be little bits of dry skin on top of each "head". I am not sure if this has anything to do with it but I have also found a bump under my arm. I think it is an in-grown hair or something, but it doen't hurt or itch.

I am tired of seeing these foolish brain dead doctors, and if I see another tube of cream again, I am going to scream! Please help.:(

  • I get a photosensitivity rash, from the sun. It itches, then they will break open and crust, take a long time to heal after that. I searched it on internet about it, I stopped using ibuprofen and started taking beta carotene and it has helped tremendously.
