Skin Problems board


I am at my wits end! I have been to the doctor, the CDC, and dermatologist. I am currently being treated for Herpatic Whitlow but I don't think it's right. I am taking Valtrex right now but it's not working completely. I have been on Acyclovir pills and ointment. What is wrong with my finger? It hurts so bad. I have to keep it bandaged at all times. It itches and burns then it will ooze looks like sweat, then it drys really bad, and starts to peel and itch and then it's raw skin and it just starts all over again. This has been ongoing for 6 months. Any suggestions?? Thanks so much!!!
