Hi.
Here is my problem. About two months ago I started noticing small white little bumps on my neck. It has spread all around my neck with it being the worst on the left side and on the back. I went to the dermatologist and four doctors looked at it and none of them had
ANY IDEA what it is. They did a biopsy and the STILL don't know what it is. I've also had this red swollen area below my nose. It is not just 1 big 'rash', but two separate ones. It hasn't changed or gotten any better in at least 5-6 months. They have tried strong steroids and it hasn't even made a dent. The white bumps are all irregular and don't itch. The 'rash' below my nose has never itched at all. The white bumps do itch sometimes and its a very intense itch, but its not all the time. They just did two more biopsies as they still are stumped. They have checked my body for any other signs of it and found nothing. So I have no idea. Its frustrating to say the least. Its amazing what the mind will do when your trying to figure out what is going on. At this point- I just want an answer. They said if they still can't figure it out after the last two biopsies- they will have to send it to Mayo in Minnesota. Just going a bit crazy.... Thanks for any help or words from anyone who has this or something like it.

I am sorry you're going through this. Please keep us update on your progress.
