Persistant Facial and body rash

Patient

Q: I have A rash on my face that never goes away and get's worse with time. I have been to every DR. and prescribed every sort of medication and steriod creams and nothings helps. I recently took a round of prednisone that calmed it down for the time I was taking it then it came back strong after I was finished with the medication. I am going for an ALCAT Test on friday thinking it might be a food allergy, but i guess this test will cover over 700 different allergens. The reash is on the sides of my eyes on my eyelids and underneath my eyes. It is mostly perdominant on my left hand side and I will also get it on my torso when no steriod creams are applied. It refuses to go away I have had antibiotics it went away then came back steriods multiple times goes away then comes back, gone on every diet there is gluten free wheat free yeast free etc. doesn't work!
