    I would search out dermatologists, and if the first one doesn't seem to know how to help or what you are dealing with, try another. It took the second one for me to get the right diagnosis and treatment.

      Hi Linda, Not possible to shop around.  71 now, diagnosed about a year ago.  Here in Australia we have a 2-tier system of public and private health service.  I went to a private dermatologist, a Dr Wu, who charged me $230 for a 10-min visit and a script for an anti-biotic; I declined the one for an anti-depressant.

    Sadly, in Queensland, Australia, I have not found a helpful GP or specialist.  Maybe a reader can enlighten me.

    It took me 18 months, two hospital stays for cellulitis with no apparent cause, treatments for interitigo, fungal and yeast infections, and treatment at a wound center to finally get an answer. I hope someone can help you finding someone to help you. I finally feel like I am beginning to heal.
