    Dear Jane,

    There is no need to suffer. I take care of many patients like you- who have seen many physicians with no answers or relief - until they see a dermatologist.

    Find a derm in your insurance network and ask to be seen ASAP. The derm may do a small skin biopsy which will finally give you the answer and relief that you are looking for

    Please keep us posted!

    I have seen several dermatologists, and have gotten a skin biopsy and also a scraping, they came back "inconclusive", I saw an allergist and no diagnoisis, (he gave me antiobiotics) today I saw an infectious disease dr., he just gave me more steriods and fungus cream which i used before. they are telling me to go to New York or Phila hospitals. my bloodwork came back with ANA direct Positive abnormal" , but was told nothing to worry about from the last dr.
