Hello Katelyn! Thanks for reaching out about your husband's situation. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any medical information over the internet and without seeing him in person. Since there is a lot of pain, I would suggest that you see a local physician/dermatologist near you. I don't have a specific recommendation, but you can go to www.AAD.org to find a dermatologist near you. I am wishing you the best and hope the pain eases soon, sorry I could not be of more help!
