I've been struggling with a horrific rash/allergy that has been misdiagnosed as foliculitis. None of the treatments i tried touched the itching and I've got horrible scars (changed pigmentation) all over my back and arms. After changing from my normal GP as I've been trying for a referral to a dermatologist for at least 6 months the locus in the practice referred me. Within 10 minutes the derm has diagnosed me with Pityriasis Lichenoides and I'm now waiting for a biopsy to confirm. Can anyone tell me how long it took after biopsy and whether once you have been diagnosed the dermatologist will 'keep you in the system' so that if you have flare ups you can go back? I'm on antiobiotics currently and heading to Florida on holiday and he tells me sun therapy is a good thing. Any tips for dealing with it gratefully received.
