    Itchy legs sores that wont heal

    Hi. I have had a problem for a couple of years it started with itchy skin on both my legs causing sores it heals, moves on to other parts of my legs, feet but has gotten worse in recent months. My doctor wants to send me to a dermatologist whom I went to and was given steroid cream, but did not help. I saw her for awhile with not improvement and she just kept giving me the steroid creme. I went back to the doctor who all but ignored the sores, bump, welts and offered to send me back to the dermatologist. I scratch the scabs off and they sore gets bigger. I'm desperate.

    Thanks for you time and I hope I didn't gross you out.

    Did your dermatolgist biopsy any of the spots/sores? I'm always breaking out with some kind of rash. They start in one little area and eventually start spreading. Turns out I had Chronic Hives. She prescribed something especialy for hives and I finally got some relief. Now whenever spots start showing up I use the prescription and it takes care of it right away. I can't remember the name of the prescription, but I think it was a liquid. It had to be mixed into a jar of CeraVe cream. If I can find the name of the prescription I'll post it here. I do remember her saying it was much stronger than a steroid cream.
