Suggest treatment for rashes on leg

I have a rash on my right front leg that was originally diagnosed as contact dermatitis . I have been to 4 different physicians and no one knows what it is. A C&S came out negative except regular Skin flora. I also have been to Loma Linda Univ hospital.The most definite answer I got was from a Dermatologist who said it was complex and gave me Clobinex that turned into chemical burn. The other was Fluocinonide which I can t use ,because it is exteremly painful.In the meantime my whole leg is hurting .Please,forgive mistakes.I m upset and this IS ruining all aspects of peaceful living .Ask me any questions.ThankI m sorry,but I do not have a credit card availoable until later tonight.I just discovered it

Hi Dear,

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of rashes on the leg which is very common due to hair follicle infection, sun poisoning and as dirt and moisture get trapped by your clothing and the friction that comes from sitting.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you to keep this area clean and dry. You should apply warm compresses with soaked towel and apply vitamin C serum at night. If condition doesn't get better then consult dermatologist for proper examination. Doctor will examine physically along with blood test and sample for lab test. Doctor may prescribe immunosuppressants and may prescribe benzoyl peroxide ointment.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
