I first noticed a large red patch on my inner thigh, it was slightly itchy, and was asymmetrical. I thought nothing of it, but after 2 weeks it began to worry me. I stared looking up what it could be- ringworm first came to mind, as well as other common skin conditions.
I didn't know what it was so I treated it with antifungal cream but it didn't help. Then, I began getting small red itchy bumps all over my back and stomach. They itched like crazy, and after a few days would turn into red dry scaly feeling patches. I decided to go to the Dr when he diagnosed me with PR.
I have been reading all your threads like crazy. He prescribed me with cortisone cream which hasn't helped a single spot. I've tried Eucerin lotion, Aveeno lotion, washing with H&R clinical strength, benadryl, a PR cream, body scrubs, and tanning.
Nothing has helped. The tanning session made some of them fade, but it keeps spreading rapidly, all over my legs and arms, face and neck. My back is practically one big red spot because they are all over me.
My Dr refuses to give me a steroid shot, or anything more than the cream. I am extremely miserable and becoming depressed. I've read that stress makes it worse- but I can't help it. It is taking over my life. I am a double major college student who works 2 jobs and just turned 21. I am embarressed just to be in public.
I'm taking I Lysine pills, benadryl, H&R body wash right now, and using a PR cream. I am trying to fit tanning into my schedule but it's really hard.
Does anyone know of any other treatments? I've heard of Prreze cream but it's so expensive and I just can't afford it
Please, please help.
