Dad's in hospital and blood is rotting away the skin?

My dad is in the hospital, he has what started as a rash and quickly turned into something different. The blood in his body is rising to the top of the skin and is now rotting away the skin. They have run test after test and can't figure it out. Please help.

Hi justin837 and welcome to ehealth: Years ago my husband had a serious skin condition...His skin was growing so fast that his body couldn't keep up with it...After many tests plus biopsies being sent away, they figured it out...I think as you age that new probles evolve...Each of us is different...Give them time...I am confident that they will do their best and hopefully all will be well...I send you my best wishes...Take care...
