I suffer from many, many allergies. I have many different reactions and they all strike at different times.
The doctors/nurses/skin specialists I have seen are baffled, some of them have said I'd be great for medical research...
I have always suffered with eczema for as long as I can remember, which I was told Id grow out of. I'm now 20 years old and it's still making my life hell...
A few months ago I very happy because my eczmea had cleared up, there wasn't a patch of it anywhere, not even any dry skin... then BOOM! I wake up one morning covered in lumps... upon research I found out it was hives, the only other time I'd ever had hives was when I'd eaten something with egg in (I'm highly allergic to egg). I ended up in hospital and taking an epipen home.
Everything was causing them
After hoovering my carpets.
Every shower gel/shampoo/deodrant know to man.
The things that trigger them the most are tomatoes, I have a slight intolorance to them and when I began to avoid them they started to clear up.
I've got it all under control now. The one thing I cant control and DON'T understand is my bedsheets.
If I don't change my bedsheets reguarly, I get very icthy dry patches of eczema but when I changed my bedsheets often, I will have a very unpleasant night and wake up covered in rather big sore hives. They go down once I get out of bed.
Sometimes (after having clean bedsheets) I can wake up covered in hives, that then turn into bruises and I can't walk.. It feels like I've been beaten up as I slept.
I dont think its my washing power because my clothes/towels dont bother me.
Only clean bedsheets...
