My daughter has sores on her head than came back negative as fungal, and didn't go away with antibiotics. They appeared after she scratched her head so hard she drew blood. They first appeared on her part line as yellow pus looking (but not leaking) spots, then they gradually dry out and scab off, only to reappear. Antifungal cream, steroid cream only helped as far as the spots turning pink and smooth, but not healing completely. In some of the spots she suffered hair loss, but it is growing back. Its been a few months since this started and I'm desperate for a diagnosis. The dermatologist I took her to wants me to apply steroid gel for 2 months before he'll do a biopsy. She also has pre exsisting seborrhic dermatitis (looks like cradle cap) but i just started using Neutrogena tar gel and that works wonders on the oil buildup, but the sores are still there. Her hair type is thick and curly, and she has alot of hair. Think the book description of Hermione Granger's hair, that's my daughter. The spots will sometimes disappear in places and reappear in others. She has no other symptoms or known health conditions aside from ADD. Has anyone dealtd with anything like this before? Any ideas? I know its not ringworm since the spots aren't always circular, plus the fungal culture was negative. I am loathe to keep applying prescription steroid gel if its only treating the symptoms, especially without an actual diagnosis.
