Then a what looks like a pimple occurs a day is very itchy and if i scratch it swells and becomes painful. After a few days of benadryl the bumps go down and leaks some clear fluid and turns dark red& crusts over. It leaves a scar that continues to itch occasionally.this has been occurring only on elbows and lower back of legs.nowhere else for a month. Went to the doctors ive been tested for lupus,RA,Diabetes,and my kidneys. I had an extermination for bed bugs and bug sniffing dog.

Dermatologist 's  Response

It seems that you are having skin disease related with mind.

You are having crawling sensation.

It is found in delusion of parasitosis.

It is hypochondrial psychosis.

Thyroid dysfunctions and vitamin B 12 deficiency shoud be ruled out by blood tests.

Antipsychotics like pimozide or olanzapine may be taken under medical supervision.

Local calamine lotion or antibiotic cream may be applied.

Consult dermatologist and also take advice of psychiatrist.

I hope you got my answer.
