    I need help. I have had a rash that has been with me since March 2011. Little by little it has spread throughout my body, legs arms stomach back and very little on my face and head. Seen 3 dermatologist had just about every test (red and white cells, liver, kidney, stool test, aids, 3 biopsy's etc...) I was given Predisone from 80mg and down. All I got from the 3 Derm Doc's were we have good news and bad news, Good news is that I don't have skin cancer, shingles, eczema and all my test were good. Bad news is they still don't know what it is...... Doing my research I ran into Multiple Sclerosis and I was wondering cause I have a tingling sensation in the back of my head I was wondering is this the cause of the rash? I told the Derm Doc's and they said the tingling is coming from the Predisone. I have been off Predisone now for 6 weeks now and still have that tingling sensation in the back of my head and still have the rash, they also told me that I'm allergic to something I'm having contact with 98% they said. I have changed everything and to no avail.....Please someone help me!!!

    Sorry to hear about your rash. MS does not cause and is not associated with a rash.
    I don't think I can offer you any suggestions from a neurological point of view.

    I to have gotten a rash that has been with me for a couple of years now. I was also told that it is not a normal MS related thing to have skin problems. But I think differently.
    newday23 replied to Neil S Lava, MD's response:
    I think that the medication causes the rash. I take Betaseron and notice that the day after injection is when I usually itch.
    I would like to try an alternative medication. What is your view on Naltrexone which is also being used by some for the treatment of MS. And has been said to have good results.
