I have suffered with severe skin problems past 9 years.

Customer Question

I have suffered with severe skin problems for the past 9 years. Dermatologist can not give me a diagnosis. Following extensive search I believe I have Pyrodermal Gangrenosum. By researching pictures of PG my lesions look the same and take a long time to
heal. Some of them are extremely painful even with strong prescription pain medications.

Did you have a biopsy? Can you attach the photos here? How tall are you? How much do you weigh? Any weight change? Any medical problem? Any surgeries? Any medications? Any family medical history?
