Small clustered bumps on forearms, legs, and hands

Have you tried Dupixent? I have been trying to find a doctor that can perform the 4/5 day patch test but so far nobody does it. I live in Guadalajara México. They have performed skin tests and there has been no clear diagnosis apart from having a very sensitive skin. They thought it might be dermatitis herpetiformis since rash and the hives appear on the same parts of my body (symmetrical), but it was discarded. I still have it and I am going for almost three years now with no clear diagnosis.

My husband uses Dupixent. It has cleared his skin but the main reason for using it is the wonderful things it has done for his asthma.
It is an injection that he gives himself every other week. It has to be refrigerated and then taken out of the refrigerator for 45 minutes before use. It is very expensive. A nurse came to the house to watch him inject himself and watch him for side effects. Of course, I don't know if it would help you. Are you using soap and detergent that are free from scent and anything else that could be making your skin reaction worse? If not, that would be the first step to take.
