to @appreciateyourhelp - My 5 Day Patch Test Allergen's
Ethyl Cyanoacrylate-adhesives, and products like Scotch Guard, spray starch, caulk paint, nail polish.
Mercaptobenzothiazole, Mecapto Mix- rubber products, blended materials like- elastic, nylon, poly/cotton, memory foam, neoprene and hundreds more.
Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Phenoxyethanol- Preservatives- in most , makeup, grooming and cleaning products.
Trixocortol Privalate- Class A Corticosteroid with a crossover to Class B Corticosteroid (there are 5 classes of steroids, some are safe for me) - in anti-inflammatory injections and skin preparations, like cortisone.
Cinnamic Aldehyde- food, fragrance, personal care products, cleaning products, fungicide, insecticide

Blood Test for metals and bone cement results for allergens-
aluminum, nickle, cobalt, chromium, vanadium

Not tested for but have learned of Sulfa allergy because of reaction to sulfa based anti-biotics like Bactrim
I also get an immediate headache from smoke of any kind, diesel fumes and most perfumes.

Even after patch testing I find I react to products which should be free of my allergens. Either I wasn't tested for this contact allergen or my reaction takes longer than 5 days to appear. That said, I am living rash and itch free because of my testing and avoidance of positive contacts and caution with any new product. Make up and shoes are the hardest to replace. Of course I had to give up all elastics- my under ware looks like something women wore in the dark ages with drawstrings and lots of seams in a 100% cotton bra. Yet I have found make up safe for me, it's taken years and this year I finally found a liquid foundation I can use. My life is basically normal again.
