Difficult to give useful advice without direct examination. Keep working with your dermatologist -- or if s/he seems uncertain, consider getting a second derm opinion. Good luck.

It could be any one of many skin conditions e.g. psoriasis. You should see a good dermatologist for diagnosis which will guide proper treatment. Good luck.
