I have suffered from contact dermatitis on and off for about 40yrs. For the last 20yrs I was told that I had pompholix eczema which only affected the palms of my hands and soles of my feet. Over the years I have been given a shed load of creams and lotions and tablets but nothing seems to work long term. I had another patch test done on the 15th Aug and since then have had a severe flare up on various parts of my body (tops of feet, legs below the knees, arms, bottom lip and hands). The result of the test show mild allergy to Nickle but severe allergic contact dermatitis to both Compositae (Asteraceae) and Ethylenediamine Dihydrochloride. I have been left hanging by the hospital with an assurance of an appointment with the dermatologist, when I don't know, but in the mean time I have no idea what to use to eleviate the swelling, cracking and itching. I would love a good nights sleep! Does anybody out there have any suggestions PLEASE. Has anyone else on here been told they have both of these allergies.
