I've been diagnosed with Spongiform Dermatitis. I'm a ship's

Customer Question

I've been diagnosed with Spongiform Dermatitis. I'm a ship's engineer, and am heading back out to sea for a month. The last time I was out, my issue led to a massive staph infection, I had to leave the ship. I'm trying to figure out what it is that I'm allergic to. I'm seeing worsening indications both at home, and at work. Changed laundry detergent, changed soap, eat a healthy diet and am avoiding gluten. I know that I've develpoed a sensitivity to diesel fuel over the years.
