[IP] Skin irritations

I apologize if this is long, but I have a question.  Maybe for some of
the medical specialists here or anyone with a similar experience.  Over
the past couple of years, I have been having some really bad skin
irritations that usually appear at an opening of my skin such as a
scratch or pimple.  I showed it to my doctor and he said it was
infection under the skin.  He prescribed some antibiotics that didn't
really seem to do the trick.  He prescribed a steroid cream which also
doesn't work.  I had a really bad one that started as a cat scratch in
November and it is just healing now.  My doctor prescribed Attarax (???)
for the itching.  This was only occurring on my legs until recently I
had a place where a nurse bruised my arm up pretty badly trying to draw
blood.  Both of my arms were so broke out.  Anyway, to get to my point.
After seven torturous months, my skin is slowly healing and the itching
has dissipated enormously.  The main changes in my life are the Attarax
I have been taking for a couple of months now and a low fat diet my CDE
has put me on to help with control and weight.  I don't think it is the
medication because up until this week, it wasn't even stopping the
itching.  It helped some, but I was still going crazy with itching.
Could it be something to do with my diet?  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
