Post op Dec 2015

gained back 35 pounds. Went on the Keto diet. Was excited and lost 12 pounds in a few weeks. Then Boom this rash sent straight from satan himself! I’m like what is this? Immediately i started putting like hydrocortisone creme and taking benadryl. I got off the diet. Here is pics. I sit at the dermatologist right now seeking answers doing blood work and urine samples when I really feel like this is a keto rash but i want it to go away. Then i will just go back to my shakes and salad greens. Jesus this itch is horrible! Does anyone have this or have got rid of it? Does it have to do with us being through bariatric surgery?
