Thanks!

I am sorry you have been exposed to sewer gas in your basement

how old are you?

your body can heal

I'm glad you are seeing an allergy doctor

you may benefit from skin allergy testing to see what you may be allergic to

you will benefit from improving your diet, eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking more water, eating good protein and exercising if you can regularly

and cutting out carbohydrates and sugars and pasta and bread and gluten out of your diet.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
