I have had rashes all over my body (about 30-35% of my body) it looks like I was scalded.....not itchy, not even painfully unless it gets really dry and tender. lotions don't work and there is not much scaling. Went to a derma and he says " I havn't seen that before" and he checked for fungus. I was to go back for a biopsy but I think most of these guys just like to play with laser surgery and really are not into "real" medicine.

I also have swollen glands in my throat and pelvic/groin area. Other than that......just seems like I am tired alot.

I have taken tramadol for 4 years (for headaches...).....and I am wondering if it may have wore down my immune system. I did get shingles a couple of years ago as well.

I don't have med insurance.....so I am trying to self diagnose. At the moment I am trying amoxicillan as it seems I must have some sort of infection. I am going to find a lab or clinic to do the biopsy and test my blood for hiv and maybe a unusual white cell count.

This rash appears on identical parts of my body.......same places on my arms and legs. I took pregnisone twice.......the 1st time it really helped (although I did not like the side effects at all). The 2nd time it didn't seem to help at all.

Any ideas out there?

  • I'm not sure of the cause of your rash, but I would suggest you not take any meds if you are not under the care of a physician. If you don 't have insurance, go to your health department or free clinic. If nothing else go the ER-they are required to treat you even if you can't pay. Don't take any other medications without a doctor's supervision. The meds can interact, you might have allergies, they might mask the real problem or cause new ones to appear. Please go to the ER at your local hospital.
