    F i were you i would insist upon a skin biopsy being done, that way they can use that to figure out exactly what it is. And then treat it properly! Dont let them use you as a guinea pig!!!

    Hi you need to eliminate sugar and yeasty stuff from your diet, sugar and yeast feeds fungal infections and help it spread. Also wear 100% cotton shorts  or pants and nothing to tight.
