If I asked my derm or allergist to do a skin cell scrape and check it under the microscope, would they be able to tell if I have seb derm?
My derm keeps telling me no, but my allergist did a cell scrap about a year ago and said there was "yeast". She said I had a fungal infection, but then my derm basically said she was crazy.
I've been using Protopic or Elidel sparingly, and it does help, but I'm convinced the rashes I keep breaking out in are somehow related to a yeast or fungus, maybe linked to my gut issues.
I'd really like to get a more specific med, either oral, topical, or both to try to treat it as a yeast or fungus issue, but I don't know how to get my derm to try it, or just ask my allergist to do another skin scrape. Or maybe just go to my internist and see if he'll prescribe something.
