Open sores can be elevated staff infection. I suspected mine were Leishmaniasis, but in retrospect, irregardless of the test, you could have co-infections.
The small red thread things are a disturbing report. These under a microscope may show another infection?
So So many people find co-infections. It is getting to the point where it invades my thinking. Get rid of a co-infection then treatment of the problem finally works.
The immune system when out of a normal balance, seams to be at the core of the problem.
Herb by herb, you could try some immune boosting and rebalance, to determine if additional improvement can be gained.
My third time around, I discovered Beta Glucan is essential for my situation. I correspond with several who have impossible co mingled infections. The vast majority report improvements with Mushroom products, brown algae products, or other immune substances.
There also is an Indian herbal text and modern review I read once, that went through each Interluken and related it to a natural substance.
Given your elevated immune system status, it is giving you a warning, opportunity to support and enhance, and possibly improve the situation.

With these universal reports coming in, it becomes more and more obvious that certain body processes can be used to combat the infection, even though they are not directly related to the infection.
Remember, the GI could have any infection, protozoan, ameoba, enterobacteriaceae, and you may not know it. Since the Immune system is in the gut, I suggest a series of natural challenge tests, to identify any potential co-infection, that unbalances the immune system, and allows this skin infection to persist.
There are also other microfilaria, nano-nematode, infections, that should not be excluded in a contributing role.
All that said, I still say that drilling deeper into the implications of the test report in hand, is the primary lead, that needs to be followed.
When I was bitten by a spider the hospital injected me with like 50 or 60 bags of Antibiotics over 2 days. Nasty ones like vancomycin, and ampicillin, and one other I forget. Bags after Bags, after Bags.
One is never sure how insect infections turn out, but one thing is certain, they can be hard to figure out and fight.
