Constant bloating

Patient : Hi, I am a 23 year old female and I've been experiencing constant stomach bloating for about a year, now. It isn't painful and I don't get constipated or have frequent diarrhea. I'm bloated not only after I eat or drink, but even when I wake up in the morning or if I haven't eaten anything all day...I look like I'm 6 months pregnant all the time. Although I have gained about 10 pounds, it isn't fat that is making my stomach stick out, because when I touch it, it feels hard, like my stomach is full and I'm pressing on my abdominal muscles. So far, I have tried a 30-day herbal parasite cleanse and I saw no results. The only other symptoms I have is a change in my acne (I used to get small ones mostly on my forehead and cheeks and now I get mostly large painful cystic ones on my jawline). I also have tinea versicolor which has been a constant for a few years before my bloating problem even started, and I have also recently developed a strange itchiness on my wrists that flares up intermittently in a slight rash and then quickly disappears. I have made no changes to my diet or exercise routine. Please help! I am getting married in 3 months and would like to have this problem resolved before then.
