I am 29 years old and have had a reacuring rash on my face/chest for the past 3 years. i have seen many dermatologists and rhuemetalogists... i have been misdiagnosed from ezema to lupus. i have done appropriate blood work and had biopsy of the rash... still nothing conclusive. i am frustrated and would like to know what is wrong with me. the rash starts with a little itchy bugbite looking bump on my cheek and progresses to full blown rash across my cheeks/chin/chest... from the initial itch it takes about 3 weeks for it to go away. this rash reoccurs every 3-4 months. i've been using locoid lipocream, it helps, but the rash keeps coming back... help!

  • Sounds like a super bad case of herpes 1. Why don't you get a blood test for it and see if it shows up that way. Start on lysine and other immune boosters, along with diet control.

  • I have a friend who has the same symptoms as you. He doesn't know what it is either. I hope you find an answer.
