skin irritation, rash, I just don't know what
moriancumr posted:
I'm 58; bumps itched left elbow mid May; Fluocinonide Cream 0.05% DID clear it up but another developed left knee; dermatologist gave me Fluocinonide Cream (0.10%); again cleared up BUT began developing patches all over my arms and legs, continually chasing them with the cream. NOTHING on my head, neck or torso, just all over my arms and legs; dermatologist says my apparent rash springs up on people as they age, comes and goes for no apparent reason; I haven't done any different with regard to diet, lifestyle, etc.; I'm frustrated; I live in the middle of nowhere about 2 1/2 hours from Los Angeles; think maybe I need to go to where a skin doctor sees many, many more cases than my little town; have pictures of latest rashes on arms. Whatdyathink?
