Hi everyone

Besides my skin condition, I’m a 23 year old healthy Caucasian female. I do have asthma but I exercise regularly and my BMI is spot on. I do not smoke it drink alcohol or take drugs.

2 years ago I started noticing these red sores between my shoulder and right breast, where one would have a name badge. The sores do not itch. More sores started appearing lower down on my stomach and around my navel area. The sores appear as read marks and then develop into hard crusts sores; they then heal by themselves and leave a mark. I do not use any moisturizer. I now wash with Dove soap, which has ¼ moisturizer cream in the soap. When these sores appeared I was washing with an antibacterial soap, which has an antiseptic in. But as soon as these sores appeared, I changed to Dove as the antibacterial soap, which dried my skin out before, was now just to harsh as these sores has sensitive to abrasion. I tried changing detergent and fabric softener.

The sores continued to appear and heal around my stomach area for about 3 month then it starting appearing on my back as well. Then after a week it went to my thighs and then to my lower legs. It then went to my buttocks. It’s currently all over my body including a single just under my one eye.

I went to see 10 skin specialists and a professor which took sample of the sores. They also tested me for STD’s but all of them came back negative. I would have hoped so, since I’m engaged and have only have one partner. The doctors said it was over active immune cells…but they do not know what is causing it, but it will go away by itself one day…

My fiancé has none of the sores of course and also none of my family members. There also no history of this in my family.

After the doctors had no answers I went to a Aryuvedic practitioner who said that it was undigested food that’s clinging to my stomach walls. He gave me natural medicine, and after $500 dollars a month for 1year, nothing has changed.

I went to a homeopath that said it was sugar/starch poisoning. $2000 dollars laters, still the same. I went to another homepath that said I should not eat sugar of wheat for 2 months, $1000 dollars later, still the same.

The sores started 3 months after I moved out from my parents house into my first apartment, so yes, my diet changed etc. Close to the area we live in there is an Oil refinery. There has been cases in the media of people claming that a lot of respitory conditions is being cause by the oil refinery. I had asthma long before I moved here. My asthma has not gotten worse since I moved here, it actually became better.

Here are some images

Thanks

  • In all the data collected on the subject it always has the words MAYBE the cause...MAYBE.. the reason there is no help for the sufferer on any illness … because medical science has yet to find the cause of.. Rather than depend on MAYBE.. to venture out of the box in search of help is the norm..Hope your venture never stops. till you find the the cure.

  • have they actually cut one off and run an analysis? Try that...well, I would move--yes, it could be constant poison--water in your shower--in the walls--is it an old building? Something in the building--mold/asbestos--poison air--lead--or a parasite--have you traveled? Mosquitos can deposit quite a number of things--no, sometimes alternative healing works, but some times it's goofy and doesn't consider the cause-plus $$$---I would:1) move2) have one cut out and sent to the lab3) see an infectous disease specialist
