I had an itchy rash in my scalp for 3 1/2 years that never went away with prescription shampoos or corticosteroids. I was told by a dermatologist that I had seborrheic dermatitis. When I got pregnant the rash mysteriously went away. Three months after I delivered, it came back. One month later, I developed a mild rash that runs down the center of my face. It is most visible on my cheeks, nose, above my lip and on my chin. It is very itchy, and I also feel itching inside my nose, deep in my ears, and on the edges of my eyelids. My eyes are also bloodshot. The itching is not constant or all over at once. It is sporadic, and when it occurs it involves a pinpoint area that itches intensely. It's enough to jolt you out of your sleep even on anti-itch meds. My symptoms don't seem to exactly fit seborrheic dermatitis or rosacea. A recent trip to a dermatologist was just about useless. I also have been having thyroid problems and I have a positive ANA titer. Has anyone had a similar problem. Please, please respond if you have. This is really effecting the quality of my life.
