my brother has had an irritating skin condition for a few years now. it is like raised patches all over trunk, legs, and neck. he also has it on his head and his hair has came out in clumps. he has been given several lotions and potions but nothing has helped. the other day he developed black sort of scabs on his upper body and a leaking scab in his groin. he attended a/e at the local hospital who gave him antibiotics for an infection in the groin. he saw his gp today and was refered to dermatology. does anyone have similar symptons or any idea what this may be

I am sorry to hear this. I have never heard of skin lymphoma. My mother in law has the blood lymphoma. You should check the internet for clinical trials if the prognosis is not good.
