I have been dealing with a skin problem since January. First redness, then some red spots, irritation, inflammation, etc. First diagnosed with rosacea, prescribed topical antibiotics, made it worse. Second dermatologist also said it was rosacea, but prescribed doxycycline. Worked for a bit, but then the redness and inflammation came back, along with the spots. Third dermatologist did patch testing and turned out I am allergic to nickel, epoxy resin, sodium methabisulphite, palladium chloride and mercurium. Ditched eyeglasses, sunglasses and anything containing that, was prescribed with a topical steroid and elidel cream, but after some days, the condition went worse. Still the same. Irritated, flaky, inflamed. I have been to another dermatologist and this one has diagnosed with peri facial dermatitis, prescribed more oral antibiotics and keep on prescribing paraffin based creams, although I have read that's a trigger for peri facial dermatitis and also because my skin doesn't agree with it, it makes it more angry and dry.
At this point I don't know what to do. I have spent loads of money, time and effort, with no results, it seems to be worse. My boyfriend thinks I have a depression, and it's really affecting my personal and professional life. Can't concentrate, all I think is about this problem. Please help me. I hate myself. I just wanna be normal again.
