Thank you for your question. My name is***** - I am a Dermatologist and will do my best to provide a useful input.

Would a photograph of the affected areas be possible at your convenience?

P.S: If this is indeed Lympomatoid Papulosis (if not I can discuss the possibilities) then I can tell you the recommended treatments but you would ultimately need to see a doctor in person to get them prescribed.
