Rash on back, reddish halo around hair follicles, hyper pigmentation on back. What could be this?

I have had an itchy rash on my back for a year and a half. My skin seems different, hair follicles on my legs seem to be infected because they have a reddish halo around them. Also the rash is leaving hyperpigmentations all over my back. Nothing is helping clear this up and my dermatologists have no idea what it could be. Possible onset with adderall prescription but the rash persists and I have not taken the drug in over 7 months.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum
Thank you for your query
i understand your concern regarding your skin problem
It is very difficult to comment only from description.
It look like folliculitis , ingrown hair ,keratosis pilaris or other follicular disease.
Some of the above conditions are resistant to treatment.
it may persist for long time and new lesion continue to develop.
You need to accept this first.
LASER or peeling may help you to some extent only.
In some case where we can not reach diagnosis ,skin biopsy is helpful.
better to take opinion of other dermatologist.
I hope I answered your query
