Any thoughts/help greatly appreciated! im honestly at breaking point with this, i can't sleep & havent felt comfortable for even a minute in months!
Started in early September 2022.
Spread to various body parts, started on hips, chest & groin, since spread more or less everywhere.
Extremely itchy Big, raised, red lumps/spots in groin, buttock & testicle area.
Pimple & rash like around rest of body.
Rash on chest seems like typical heat rash, was much worse at first but calmed down now.
Generally feeling run down, have had 2 significant colds since started.
Ulcer on inside of mouth has come up twice since start.
Have been drying effected areas with kitchen roll to avoid spread.
Itching so intense i havent been able to get to sleep then waking up constantly every night, sleep has been badly effected.
Constant itchy feeling all day.
Seen various doctors, sexual health clinics & a dermatologist with no success, all have different ideas on what it may be, below are treatments used so far:
aciclovir tablets / flucloxacillin tablets / daktarin 2% cream / piriteze allergy tablets / ketokonazole 2% shampoo / doublebase moisteriser / fucidin 20mg cream / betnovate 0.1% cream / dermol 200 shower / lyclear
most made things worse but the betnovate helps things to an extent.
i tested positive for chlamydia in the early stages but treated this with doxycycline which cleared that up.
Previously had herpes outbreak, but everyone ive seen is certain its not sexual health related - ruled out herpes, syphillis etc.
Treated for scabies recently as well to rule that out.
Dermatologist thought it may be eczema but wasnt at all certain.
Below are current pictures of its current state.
Thank you for any help.
