[FONT="Georgia"][COLOR="DarkRed"]You sound just like me. Mine didn't start to get any better until I went to an allergist. One of the things we discovered was a nickel allergy, and it turns out that this was the major cause of the skin symptoms.

A nickel allergy as bad as mine means no jewelry (all gold has nickel in it, white gold even more than yellow), and covering up the inside of the button on my jeans with a Band Aid, stuff like that.

He gave me some VaniCream with Triamcinolone in it (it's like hydrocortisone), and I take antihistamines and allergy shots. My skin has gotten much better since I started all of this.

I don't know if yours is the same as mine, but maybe my experience helps. :)
