Has been intermittent since about January 12 of this year. Its on my thigh, it kept coming and going, back in January, doctors in NJ treated and tested for staph, which came back negative. Then doctors told me it was a fungus infection gave me a creme to put on it, three weeks later rash was still there, went back to doctors, they then took a scraping, said there might be some fungus but were not sure, but said they saw hives from my body reacting to the creme. They then prescribed my lamisil pills, one of the strongest internal antifungal treatments, they prescribed two months worth. After two monthsrash was still there, over next month, rash goes away, to then just come right back. Then it went away for about a month, went to Dr in Orlando, she treated me for dermatitis, with saying that if it didnt clear up that I was going to be sent to Dermatologist. Well a week later it started coming back, so she didnt hesitate and referred me to dermatologist. I went today and they looked at it, and I told them I did research online, since I was disappointed of Drs in NJ, not doing proper procedures, and asked herif there was way to tell if it was Fungoid Mycosis, she said well lets wait to see the main doctor, he looked at it, and said I can tell you this there is no way it is or ever has been fungus infection. But he wasnt sure, so they numbed the area and punched out a cylinder piece for biopsy. Reason for post is, anyone ever hear of a persistant rash and what the results of it are... I wont have results for two weeks, and just trying to ease my mind.
