In Reply to: Fluorescent lights and newspaper print posted by Kathy on May 04, 2000 at 20:02:45:
I have been working with a news-paper company now for over 6 years. 3 year ago I came down with a rash that itches, burns and hot to the touch that can't be explained. The rash brakes out at work and also out of work when pressure is applied to the skin. It is always present on the back of the head and likes to come out where the skin seems to be the thinnest. The glands in the back of the neck also seem to get inflamed. The rash starts out very small then turns into welts then oozes.
Any insite or ideas would be appreciated as this rash is such an annoyance.
: Does anyone out there have problems with an allergy to newspapers? I cannot read the paper for more than five minutes or I break out in a rash that burns and itches.
: Also, when exposed to fluorescent lights for awhile any exposed skin turns bright red (sometimes spotty) gets very hot to the touch and itches, severely at times. Appreciate any answers.
