My daughter developed a severe skin rash. It started on her scalp and basically moved down her body. It is on her forehead but not her face, on her arms, legs and back but not her hands or feet. It is worst on her back, shoulders and lower legs. It seems to start to go away then flares up again. The bumps are tiny and not very red, in fact they appear light on her skin (she is Chinese born and has medium skin tone). She has scratched herself raw in many places so has scabs related to that. I took her to the dr but they didn't have a clue so prescribed a strong steroid cream that has helped some but the rash is still there. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Any ideas? No new soaps, shampoos, detergents etc.

Thanks
