Over the past 2 years I have seen 2 dermatologist about a a scalp condition that continues to get worse with no diagnosis. I have red blisters on my scalp, they feel like pimples and are very itchy, they are not located in one area, but is throughout the whole scalp area. The same condition has spread to my arms and legs, but it is more severe on the scalp. I have tried all kinds of shampoo to treat this condition, but none have worked. At first, I thought it was folcullitus, but both dermatologists said it was not that and they did not have a clue what it was.

I am beginning to think it is some kind of fungus, or bacterial infection. My WBC (white blood cell) count was elevated, but my family doctor tells me that it is not unusual to have an elevated WBC count because I have had a splenectomy. I am also suffering from extreme fatigue, but my hemoglobin is within normal range. I have asked to have my blood cultured, but my doctor insists that it would be a waste of time, I am seeking a new doctor to see. If anybody has any idea of what this may be I would appreciate your suggestions, and or advice.

  • I have been to multiple doctors and one derm. they have treated me for everything from foliculitis to psoriasis and ringworm. I finally found a forum that suggest that it is stress related. For me it has been very mild expect when under alot of stress, then it pops up everywhere. My doc even suggest allergy related dermatitis. Hope this helps. I am thinking Valium..lol
