Customer Question

I have itchy red spots on my hands, fingers (where I where my rings when I can) and on my armes and a few on my legs. I have been deeling with this for a couple of years now and it does get better in the summer but doesnt go away and only gets allot orse in the winter. I have been prescibed all different ointments for it an remove the use of any soap that is not free and clear. Is there anything else I can do or do I just have to tolerate it forever?

No food , drug. I do take allegra for allergies to help but I really dont know what I am allegeric to. I also do have 3 cats.

I think, you should consult with a good allergist regarding this.

There are chances of contact dermatitis or any hyperreactivity to any thing in the surrounding, that trigerring antigen needs to be found out.
Meantime, you should take antihistamines like Cetirizine ,if symptoms worsen.

Thanks I will try it. My dermatologist told me I will always have it but an allergist may be able to determine the cause. Thanks
