: I have eczema and for about 3 years now, once it was so bad I was given oral cortisone ... but now I only have dry itchy skin during the winter and use Eubos lotion and oil bath to treat it. Somehow, one thing never change is my puffy swelling face, imagine a skinny body with a fat face...
: I was diagnosed with nickel allergy for 3 years ago, I started to avoid eating tinned food, cooking food on stainless steel and avoid eating out. It worked, I was back to my own face, but as for recently, I have itching skin again, even avoiding nickel in my diet my face is getting puffier each other. My eyes swelling up that they look tiny, my jaw line is gone, my cheecks look like a ballon. I eat well and excersise regularly.
: Please if someone can tell me what's wrong with me?
: Thank you.
You are probably having some type of allergic reaction to something again. You need to go see your allergist and have him run some more tests to find out what it is that is causing this allergic reaction. In the meantime you might try taking some Benadryl to try to help the allergic symptoms. Good Luck
