rash gone after 6 years
« on: July 14, 2008, 08:58:24 PM »
I have had a rash on my chest for over 6 years . It looked like small bumps and in some places it looked like a road rash , kind of like some one used sand paper on me .

I asked every doctor Ive seen during this time , I even consulted 3 dermatologist . They all had a diffrent diagnosis , some treated it as flat wort's , some put me on antibiotics for months at a time . Last month I went to a 4 dermatologist who told me before I could get my shirt all the way off that it was a yeast infection . He was right . A four dollar script for a topical cream cured me . I went swimming at the lake this weekend without my shirt on for the fist time in years .

Good news that it's gone.  I get a yeast problem right in the crack of my mouth (yes, mouth) sometimes and use one of those topical creams and it takes it right away.  Glad you got to go swimming without your shirt on-did you also not have your pants on? ;)
