Have seen 2 dermatologists and another specialist. Zoster -like blisters appeared on torso and were followed by a severe urticaria outbrake in the form of Erythema Annulare Centrifugum. Only strong dosis of cortisone seems to alleviate the urticaria. No answer as yet to the diagnose or cause of this situation. Bullous Pemfigoid was tested and came back negative, No Allergies and no contact dermatitis either. Recent alternative medical pratices suggested that I might be looking at a pathogenic infection. Candida, Sheep liver fluke or something of this nature possibly??? This is my second episode and both occured months after childbirth ( low immune system and stress for Mom). I had to stop Breastfeeding in both instances!

Any advise on what I should do, or where I can get some info on this terrible medical unknown condition to my doctors!!! It took me 5 months on 25mg Prednisone a day to get over the first episode in 2004, I hate cortisone and still do not know what caused it!!! Don't want to drink the stuff this time around..
