So glad you are getting clues about a possible allergic reaction and that the topical is helping. Your topical is supressing your allergic reaction and yes is a miracle for getting relief but not getting to the root of the problem If you believe you are having an allergic reaction please if you can find the money get the 5 Day Extended Patch Test. If you have one allergy you will have more and your symptoms become more severe with each contact. Not all dermatologists are licensed to perform this test. They get a special license from the test kit companies and they limit the licensed doctors in each area. This test gave me my life back! I was treated topically for 10 years, just like you are doing now. Yes I would temporary relief from my symptoms only to have them reappear more severly. A vicious cycle because I was only treating the symptoms and not eliminating the cause.
