two years, I have had a recurring skin rash

Customer Question

For approximately two years, I have had a recurring skin rash on my torso and limbs. This consists, in sequence, of an itch beginning with a bite/prod-like sensation, followed, in sequence, by a hive-like itch, which develops into serous-filled pimple, which then bursts, when it becomes quite sore before forming a scab. This I have being treating with Dermovate 0.05% ointment which causes the scab to duly dry-up and fall-off.
Is there (1) another more-effective cream/creams which I might apply and (2) is there some deficiency in my diet for which i might compensate?
