I am a 23 year old female and have been diagnosed with Discoid Eczema and Seb Dermatitis :( I have been using Betnovate Cream (for the itchy patches) and Cetraben emollient cream all over. I have been getting these reddish patches on my chest, arms, neck, back and recently a couple on my cheek and tummy (Picture is of my lower arm). I recently returned to see my Dr as i noticed a few on my tummy and she said it looks like seb derm, but before she told me it was discoid eczema. I feel like screaming as i am getting nowhere!!Occasionally they itch but i seem to be getting more of them, particularly on my arms and neck. I hate how they look and they are really starting to affect me on a day-to-day basis as i am constantly trying to cover up those areas.

Does anybody have any suggestions of what they are? Causes? etc. Would a ***** test be useful? I have reacted to soap and the Dr said it could be a possibility to get the test done.

Thank you.
