7Lil, Thanks for replying to me. I have been to every dr. imaginable and have tried everything. After 6 years of many different drs. and many different medications, both topical and oral, the drs. decided that it was not topical because absolutely nothing worked. I was on allergy pills and shots for 5 years and it didn't help at all. I have been to 4 Dermatologists and we have changed everything, shampoo, hairspray, deodorant, etc. Have even tried not using products on my body. Please believe me, if it's out there, I've tried it. The drs. are amazed that the Zelnorm is helping me. One of my dr's. says that there are nerves in the stomach to relate to the brain and Zelnorm is relaxing these damaged nerves. I don't know it's a mystery to me.
