29 yrs old Female
My mother also suffers from allergy – she has neurodermia. She told me that she used to have major skin rashes as a result of stress, allergies rhinitis. My brother has penicillin allergy. For a period of time we used to visit the same allergologist. Now she has no skin rash, but her skin is very dry. I have examined my medical card. Allergic dermatitis was diagnosed since my birth. I had skin rash on different parts of body: cheeks, arms, legs, hands. At first doctor diagnosed milk, strawberry and nut allergy. Later another allergologist carried out tests and diagnosed lemon, orange, mandarin allergy. Then dust, tree pollen and weed was added. My skin was dry with skin rash, fissures, sometimes I suffered from oozing lesions. Nearly 5 years ago I started suffering from major skin rash, and nothing could help – antihistamines, skin creams have only temporary action. The last allergologist that treated me carried out skin tests and the last test took place nearly 3 years ago. I have gone through 3 courses of treatment (injections of allergens to lower the sensibility). The last course was carried out 3 years ago. But 2 years ago the skin rash has appeared again. I have periods of remission, but I cannot clean up my skin completely. The situation gets worse durng blossom periods.
Speaking about my nutrition, I don’t eat nuts, pork and beef as I feel heaviness in stomach. My perspiration is normal, almost does not smell.
The neurologist diagnosed osteochondrosis of the cervical and thoracic spine, but I guess it has nothing to do with my allergy.
