Ok I will have to get my list of meds I have tried.Yes a skin culture was performed a few weeks ago.They found a skin disease and said anti biotics should clear this up.500 mg of Keflex for 10 days.No help.I will have to get you the pictures.When I send all this ,should I direct them to you personally?

No pain,just some itching sometimes.Clears up then comes back at different parts of face and scalp.

This rash is on my forehead and scalp and beside my left eye.The leisons are circular mostley and will bleed if I itch them.
