Hello Barbara,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

I am Dr. Thomas, double board certified physician with over 20 years of clinical experience. I will help you with your question and any follow up questions you have.

you need a sample of the skin sent to the lab.
Has this been done?

If treatment is not working then this needs to be done.

You don't even seem to have an exact diagnosis.

Other skin disease?
Contact dermatitis?

Stop wasting time and money and have the lab identify this.

Use reply to let me know if you have further questions.
