A male friend of mine has been experiencing an itchy rash for many years (similar to poison ivy). It has progressed onto large boils covering parts of his body. He has no insurance, so testing has been minimal- they mostly try to treat him with prednisone and anti-biotics, but recently it has gotten MUCH worse, and the rash/sores are now all over his face, and cover every part of his body. Has anyone else seen anything like this before?? With the boils, I am afraid he will get a staph infection and die before anyone figures out what the heck is wrong.
