What causes persistent headache and eye redness with an elevated WBC count?
you need to get investigated thoroughly ..
Hello Axxxxxxxx, Welcome to HCM,
Sorry for the delay in the response..
I've gone through your query in details and understand your concern..
Yes, I've reviewed all those images and they are quite suggestive of allergic response(along with your eye involvement), and considering their wide spread distribution, you need to get thoroughly investigated as well as clinically evaluated..
The Doctors advised you to get checked by the Dermatologist because of it's generalized nature and persistence despite the steroids as well as antibiotics (not seem to have much of role in this) therapy..
It's good that you're back to your country now, and since it's still persisting I'd strongly suggest you to get checked by either an Infectious Disease specialist or an Internal Medicine Specialist(if can't find any infectious disease specialist), as there can be several possibilities(however even I doubt the Sea lice bite as you've rightly pointed out that they're indeed quite itchy not so prolonged)..
St. Maarten, being a tropical region, has several types of bugs and insects and some of those bites manifest like these, but to be absolutely sure, thorough clinical examination and relevant investigations (Absolute Eosinophil count and/ allergy panel test etc.) is needed..
Subsiding of blisters and hardening of under surface of skin is indication of body's own immune response and healing process actually..
Well the DNS must have been there for a while so not likely contributing to this present condition..
Try to apply soothing moisturizer and body lotion like Aloe-vera over the area, it'll provide some symptomatic relief, meanwhile just schedule the appointment with the Infectious Disease Specialist for a detailed clinical evaluation..
Please let me know if you have any further queries, I'll be glad to clarify..
Let me know how you stay in the due course..
