Hi Link,

I feel for you. The skin condition looks terribly uncomfortable.

It certainly could be a form of tinea corporis, but it's not showing the classic patterns which can be used to make a 'visual' diagnosis. I can see widespread erythema and lichenification due to scratching. I think you probably do need to be a lot gentler with it and avoid abrasive rubbing.

The small abscess-like areas containing pus could have been a kerion. This may be what left the 'pits' after they burst.

It's obviously reached the point where you need to see someone about this urgently... Get some skin scrapings done to send to the lab, observe the skin under a Wood's lamp (if available), and potentially do a diagnostic skin biopsy. Some routine blood tests would also be advisable.

Any fungal infection that widespread would be treated with oral medication, usually terbinafine, less often itraconazole.

If it's not fungal, you urgently need to know what it is so you can receive appropriate treatment. Virtual online appointments just aren't appropriate. I'd literally be turning up at the ER if I really couldn't see a doctor after such as long time.

How are you feeling? Any progress with seeing a doc?
