I'm new to this forum so sorry for the long post.
I have been suffering from an allergic reaction the last 5 of months. I have had red swelling around my eyes and thin red skin surrounding them when they are not swollen (which never goes away) . Also I have been getting excema flare up all over my body which flares up randomly. The excema on my body is that bad that it's stopped me from having hot showers and also any type of fitness, as it flares up after my body temperature rises.
I have had a prick test and the results came back as I am highly allergic to pollens and dust mites. I also started a new job as a dental technician a few months ago, I handle chemicals all day and read that contact excema is very common in this industry.
Long story short, I have narrowed down my flare ups to either dust mites from my mattress or the chemicals from work. I was wondering if i have a dust mite allergy, should I get symptoms ( itchy, red skin, hayfever symptoms etc.) soon after I lay in my mattress or do the symptoms show days later?
I don't get itchy at night when I am in bed so I am a bit confused to which one is causing my problems.
Thanks guys, hopefully you guys can helpe out as this is pretty darn frustrating.
