Suggest treatment for lupus and stress dermatitis

Yes I also have had a very similar experience with the strange black specks rising up out of my skin. My family doctor sent me to an infectious disease doctor because my whole body was broken out so badly he thought I had scabies. My doctor kept treating me for scabies with so many medicines it was crazy! I cried every day nonstop! My skin was full of soars with a top layer of crust over top of it. I itched like crazy and those black specks kept rising up out of my skin. I was about to loose my mind. Well I went to the infectious disease doctor and he cut a skin sample and blood test. To make a long story short I have lupus, stress dermatitis and come to find out recently our well water is full of bacteria s. My doctors are not aware of my water situation yet. I have been bathing with bottled water or alcohol. I have long hair down to my waist so I have no choice but to use our well water. Now my dermatitis is in my scalp. What is so strange about all this is I live with my parents due to my divorce well my mom and dad have developed dermatitis also in their head and parts of their body. I am guessing from the well water. We are having the water treated of course but my concern is the black specks coming out of my skin. My doctors think I am crazy so I just don t mention it any more. I think it could be hardend mold. Am I right? All this started a year and a half ago and I look a lot better. I still have to wear lo g sleeves and now its gone down my legs to my feet. These marks look more like soars its embarrassing. I was told to just dry out for now due to the fact I was on 5 pages of medicines within 4 months. So I have to go back to my specialist to find out what I can put on my dermatitis to clear this up. I do need a job u know?!?! Thank u for letting me tell u my story and if u do know anything about these black speck it would be nice to know something. Oh and I sat in the sun and they came pouring out of my skin like crazy it was so so gross!!! Dermatitis

* As the issue sounds more of an autoimmune process related the management consists of systemic steroid therapy with due precautions to monitor total WBC count and liver, kidney function test.

* Maintenance of body weight, blood sugar and cholesterol are very vital.

* Do manage to have a regular sound sleep of 7-8 hours with deep breathing exercises and YOGA technique.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
