i have a red rash on the side of my nose which is spreading

This answer was rated:

i have a red rash on the side of my nose which is spreading across the left side if my is very itchy and raised. i hace tried clotrimazole and clotrimazole with hydrocortisone but they don't seem to be working. i have also had a course of doxycycline hcl 50mg again with no result. it has been recommended that i consult a dermatologist but living rural it will be months before i can access one. is there anything i can do while i am waiting as the itching drives me nuts.
can u post a photo ? unlikely to be a fungus since it has not responded to antifungals.Seborrheic dermatitis, discoid LE, lupus vulgaris etc should be considered.
