Welcome to HealingWell, Logman. I'm not a frequent allergy poster, so hopefully some of those "in the know" will respond also. I'm sorry to hear you're having such a difficult time; that sounds absolutely horrible!
I'm a little confused as to why your doctor would advise you not to get on the list for the Dermatologist. If the wait today is two years, and you get on the list, a week from now the wait will be 2 years, 358 days. You could still go on trying everything you're trying in the meantime, but you'd slowly be inching closer to the top of the list. What do you have to lose? I'd go back and revisit that with the doctor if I were you.
