Hi group,

I am a 30 year old male who has had a rash on my right thigh, hip and right buttock since November. They start out as red dots and then spread into coin shaped lesions that tend to be itchy. Various dermatologists have mentioned nummular eczema and psoriasis. Treatments such as prescription ointments have helped. Actually, the original lesions have disappeared, but new ones have appeared in the same areas of the body. I work in cancer and brought up to the doctor Mycosis Fungoides, though I don't think I have it. That causes discoloration of the nails and is a rare type of lymphoma. He requested I had a biopsy, but another doctor in his practice didn't think it made sense. I see him again tomorrow.

I was hoping someone could give me their personal experience with eczema or any other rash that has appeared on one leg (which to me rules out any outside irritant) and that has had something chronic like this for as long as I have? Anyone out there?

Thank,
-Josh
