Re: Contact dermatitis? Eczema? I need help !
When I go out on a high pollen day, my eyes itch, my nose runs, my chest tightens, and--
I break out in itchy red bumps on my face and neck. Sometimes they look like mosquito bites. When it gets severe, I get hives/eczema type rashes that start at my ears and run down and forward. It looks pretty hideous, actually. And there's no doubt in my mind or my allergist's that it is triggered by exposure to pollen.
So, yes, definitely possible. A daily antihistamine can help, or allergy shots are also an option.
When I've been outside, I try to rinse my face with plain cool water as soon as possible. I always shower in the evening, before bed, to try to reduce my exposure. You might want to look into allergy proofing your bed.
