I am hoping that someone can help me here. I am a 35 year old male and I have been having this skin problem for approximately 2 years. I have seen 3 GP's, 3 Dermitologist and one Allergist. I have been mis-diagnosed as having scabies, contact dermatitis, atopical dermatitis, etc. I have tried steriods, creams and more creams. I am posting pictures of my rash in hopes that someone on this site has had the same type of rash and might know what is causing it. I have had blood work done numberous times and all results have been normal. My allergy test (back patch)showed no sensitivity to any of the things that were included in it. I have changed jobs, soaps, location and everything else I could think of and all to no avail.
The rash is mainly on my hands and ankles. There is a picture of my leg where I was bitten and the doctors thought it was a spider bite, but it has never healed and it happened prior to the rash coming on.

I have several other things going on that just don't add up and I did not have before the rash.
Excessive gas
Joint pain
Premature graying
Swelling of hands
Shortness of breath
Excessive bowel movements (5x per day)
Excessive weight gain (20lbs in 3 months)
Knots under the skin in the right arm on the inside of the elbow, on the upper right leg and on the left side of the stomache a very large one, then on the right side under the ribcage I have one.
You will need to enlarge to get the full view of the rash and the weeping blisters.
I am grateful for any input on this matter.
