I have had a rash now for over a month. Was initially just on my chest, then in the same place on the outside of each calf. Was treated with antifungal cream, then with Elemite and oral steroids. Rash was a tiny bit better until I went off steroids, then spread to upper legs, arms, upper buttocks/low back and upper back. It is symmetrical, intensely itchy. Went to dermatologist and he immediately suggested DH. Sent a biopsy to Mayo. It came back negative. When I tried to question whether it was a biopsy of the lesion or healthy skin next to the lesion, he cut me off and said he did the biopsy right. Now he says it is scabies and is treating me with steroid cream and Elemite again!! It does not look like any pictures of scabies I have seen and does not have the typical distribution of scabies. It has now spread to my abdomen. I wish I could attach a couple of pictures. Getting very frustrated as the itching is driving me batty. I have been on antihistamines for over two weeks now and using steroid creams, caladryl, etc. It doesn't ever go away.
