I had a rash back in April 2014. Small bumps in patches. Not too itchy. Fairly certain that Baby Oil contributed to the start of it. I didn't go to a doctor until 3 weeks later. I was given Prednisone and it went away.
About 2 months later I got the same type of rash. This time I waited 3 months before seeing a doctor. My primary referred me to a dermatologist.
The dermatologist recommended Prednisone but I did not like how I felt last time so she prescribed a strong cream along with a nighttime antihistamine. Almost immediately my small bumps became welt-like. And it spread. I returned and they prescribed Prednisone along with Allegra. A biopsy was done at this time. The Prednisone did not work this time. After I was weaned off - they tried Minicycline - also did not work. The biopsy came back testing positive for Wells Syndrome - a rare skin disorder. They asked for a 2nd biopsy to check for a blistering disease - the results take approximately 2 weeks. Next I was put on Dapsone (Day 9 of taking it) and Allegra and Hydroxyzine at night. My 2nd biopsy came back negative - whew. However, I am still itchy and developing small bumps again that tend to travel. They would like for me to go to a doctor 3 hours away and they scheduled an appointment February 23. I don't think I can itch for that long!
If it is Wells than shouldn't one of these meds have worked?
