Since 9yrs ago i first developed a problem with pants/jeans etc where as they cause me to have burning stinging itchy skin. I found online there has been people like with something called pants paresthesia syndrome. But as the years went on all kinds of clothing started affecting me. Dress shirts, sweaters, some long sleeve shirts underwear etc. It doesn't matter what fiber, color, detergent I try it's all the same. Even organic cotton didnt help. Sometimes after repetetively washing the garments the problem went away but for other garments it never does. I went to an allergist once who said he seen people like me but it's very rare and said I should see a dermatologist. I'm now in the care of a dermatologist. We did a patch test I'm only allergic to balseum and he gave me Atarax 10mg so far it hasn't done anything except give me side effects. He too said my issue is very rare. It's not the typical textile dermatitis where I get rashes etc because I get no visible signs whatsoever.
I did live in moldy water leaked apts for many yrs of my life I wouldn't be surprised it may have predisposed me to issues because my mother lived with me in those apartments and she gets sore throats and chest tightening from new coats hats scarves, dish detergents, make up etc mostly synthetic stuff. My blood tests are all normal.
I'm in a desperate situation where I lost a good job and can't find work in the areas I wanna work at because they require proper attire. I'm scared I'll be locked away home naked if this goes on.
