AND I CAN SEND THEM TO YOU********* THANKS!!
It may not look like it in the pictures, but the bumps are pink and read. They normally start out pink and turn red when I itch (I know I know, I shouldn't itch but it is very painful).. I've noticed they also look like they form a dark red scab like they bled - but they didn't.
The one with what looks like scabs is the initial area it started on. It started with the bumps, and I severely scratched it and irritated it I believe, where it started scabbing over, flaking and oozing as well. In certain areas, it did crack my skin as well (my wrists, forearm, and finger) It did ooze when I went to the dermatologist the first time.
As for my face, you can't see in the pictures very well, but the inflammation generally went down, but there are still these bumps all over and it is very rough. I apologize again for the photos!
I call the Dr. back tomorrow, he wanted me to let him know what was going on. Well, my reply is going to be, it helped the initial arm. It did not help my other arm at all, it took the inflammation away from my face, and that's about it. I keep repeatedly getting these bumps.
When I looked online, it said many things can cause contact dermititis.. I work in a Dental office, so I am around chemicals a lot.. But this started in June, I had been working at this place since March. Wouldnt it effect it right away? I am around a dog constantly, maybe the dander makes it worse?
I also think he had me on a small dosage of prednisone. He started me with 10mg the first time, but then I said my heart started racing - I think that was caused by the stress this is causing me. The second time, he has me on 5mg.
If he doesn't have an answer, or just wants me to pay AGAIN to look at it, I'm going to someone else.
Thank you for your help in advance!
