Recent Diagnosis of Lymphomatoid Papulosis
For the past 6 years, I have had red itchy bumps on the stomach and back- they go away, come back. Sometimes will actually bleed and scar. Over the past 6 years, went to top Dermatologist in RI, she advised me that I was allergic to Bounce fabric softeners and to stop using them. This didn't work. My PCP just gave me a cream to put on it and THAT didn't work. I finally went to an allergist, who did all allergy tests on me- Found I was allergic to Nickel, but that didn't explain the problem.
The bumps have ALWAYS been on my trunk. About 5 weeks ago, 4 bumps showed up on my left wrist and I went to a PA at a dermatology office, who thought it was nothing- but I insisted on a biopsy, and come to find out I have Lymphomatoid Papulosis. CBC was done and CXR- all results were fine. What are they looking for on CXR?
Can some of you out there that have this disease share their experiences with me?? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
