i have what started out and stayed looking like a poison ivy rash on my leg for a month. after that month it filled with clear yellow fluid, popped a lot, and now looks like a large black scabby thing. today i have about a dozen of those between my two legs. i also have developed about a hundred tiny to small red bumps (papules?) that slowly popped up all over my body.

occasionally one of the little bumps break and scabs and becomes resembelent of the ones on my legs but nowhere near as big. especially on forearms and thighs.

i was in a tropical environment for about 4 months and the original rash on my leg started there - over 2 months ago today.

slowly my neck, ears, chest, hands and fingers are developing bumps too. they were the last, besides face and genitals -still good- to be clear.

  • Looks to me like a nummular dermatitis.Did you apply neomycin containing cremes?These pustules probably are sensitization reaction.

I was told from 2 dermatologist it was acne & the 3rd one actually biopsied 2 of them, he said it is PN-Puruigio Nodularis (hope I spelled it right) but this usually starts on the legs & itches quite a bit. Mine didn't start there nor does it itch. I think this is what they call it when they have no clue whats going on with your skin. Have you been able to get to a doctor yet? Have you found something to help clear your skin up?
