Oh how awful for you, it must of been so irritating and in such a delicate place too. I always wear rubber gloves washing dishes etc have you ever experienced a rash on your hands touching rubber? My Mother used to suffer from contact dermatitis and would wear cotton gloves to do housework, but I don't think she ever figured out what was causing the irritation.
I'm so happy for you that they have worked it out and your symptoms have eased.
Take care,
