Dermatology

I’m the middle of a patch test on my back. it’s the most nerve racking thing .. it doesn’t hurt no , but it’s very annoying . it puts pressure on your back because you don’t want to move a certain way or the tape will be coming off and that defeats the whole purpose. been itching for 4 months. eczema!!!! but why ? we shall see next week what the results are.

one thing of course after another

My wife had a rash. Then we got the Covid booster. The booster sent the rash hyperactive around her body. The dermatologist finally did a biopsy and some blood work. Her rash is ecsama based. We finally have the right creams for it and it is starting to go away. The doctor also told her to change her diet as certain foods can trigger it too. I truly wish you all the best.

@Chickie Yes it does. My wife's rash was really bad after getting the Covid booster. She couldn't have anything with acid in it. No bread, potatoes or rice and she had to reduce her sugar intake too. It made a big difference. Once you get your rash under control then the dermatologist said to add things back into your diet at a rate of one item per week to see what your triggers are.
