Your symptoms sound very familiar. Does your rash look more like a burn nearly? My husband has the dread rash...the VA said he had an infected hair follicle (all over his body, Ha). You need to make an appointment with your nearest VA Hospital and go in for a checkup. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP A COPY OF EVERYTHING! The VA will make arrangements for you to see a dermatologist.
Have you registered with the Persian Gulf Registry?
Please be patient and persistant dealing with the VA Hospital can be difficult!
I served in the gulf and have had strange skin rashes ever since I got back.I have memory loss
: and severe headache's often. I have never been to the VA or talked to anyone about it.
: what is the first step? who do I need to talk to?
