I have attached a few pics I hope these are useful

I see one open lesion and multiple areas of redness. The red areas on her back could be sensitivity to detergents that her clothing is washed in. This may also be a mild Eczema. The rash on her thigh may be from an insect bite. May I suggest you use detergent that is scent free and mild such as 7th Generation or Tide Free and Clear. Also use a non-scented baby soap for her bath. Applying over the counter 1% Hydrocortisone Cream twice daily should help with the redness and itching.

I hope I have addressed your concerns. Have I?

Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance.

I am available to answer any additional questions you may have.

Pervious pictures show blister on her finger - part0.jpg, blister on top of scalp - part0_2.jpg, blister on toe - part0_3.jpg, blister on lower thigh with scratch marks on her upper thigh where she has been itching at herself (new rash present not a concern at this time these blisters have been ongoing for 2 months) - part0_8.jpg, blister on hip - part0_6.jpg, two blisters above ankle - part0_7.jpg, two blisters back of neck - part0_9.jpg

picture - part0_9.jpg also shows new rash present around neck and shoulder again not a real concern right now and also a large raised area which is also new but possible looks the worst but not what we are seeking help with. We already use hypoallergenic products watching her diet as she is allergic to milk likely soy like her sisters. No one else has contracted this from her we have been to doctor multiple time can't get in to see dermatologist for another 3 weeks

From the appearance, this is not herpes. I feel that from your history and the appearance, these are bites possibly from fleas. Do you have a dog or cat? Or is she exposed to animals? Try the 1% Hydrocortisone cream, I feel that will help.

no pet we are using hydrocortisone cream oatmeal baths she is seldom around other people with pets not sure a couple times a week for several hours she is with her father no cooperation on his part he claims her is following protocol but no way of really knowing.
We started with two antibiotics, cefdinir cream, nystatin cream, hydrocortisone cream, permethrin skin wash, sulatrim, triamcinolone cream again prednisolone, banophen, hydrocortisone cream again Tylenol and ibuprofen 8 hr scabies skin wash eczema wash lotion still no help and no answers.

You have really tried just about everything. As difficult as it may be to watch her, you will need to wait until she is seen by the Dermatologist. May I suggest that you stop everything you are applying or giving her by mouth. Only use Benadryl Cream and 1% Hydrocortisone cream twice daily. You can use oatmeal baths and a moisturizer twice daily. The dermatologist will find and treat the cause.

You are welcome.

The Benadryl will help with any itching and relieve any allergic component of her rash.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
