My query is to a dermatologist. My Name is Mrs. Nair, age- 38 years, female. My problem is listed below:

In 2006 April I started having hyper pigmentation on my face, neck and upper back. I consulted a specialist at Manipal Hospital, Bangalore and underwent blood test. As per the blood test my IGE (immunoglobin E) was 460, high above normal. Therefore, I underwent a patch test and the result of the patch test said I was allergic to PPD and some parabens. So my problem was diagnosed as hyper pigmentation due to contact dermatitis. I had used hair colour since February 2006 and as per this result I completely stopped using the same. I underwent chemical peeling, micro dermabrasion and laser treatment subsequently. My facial skin improved a bit, but not much. I had to shift to Egypt on official assignment and here again I consulted two dermatologists. They suggested a skin biopsy for Macular Amyloidosis and a biopsy was done. As per the biopsy report "bundles of collegen found in the dermis and slightly reactive to congo red staining. diagnosis: Amyloidosis."I do not have any itching on the skin except sometimes which i take as due to dryness. Can you please confirm what is my condition? Is there any treatment for this? I would really be grateful for your reply as I cannot consult a doctor from India face to face now as I am still in Egypt.

I have been having skin rashes that have gotten worse over the year. I have been to a dermatologist and thought it was contact rash. I am thinking it is what I am eating. I just went to a holistic dr. and she said I tested positive for
allergic reactions to gluten, dairy and artificial sweetners. I also have inflammation from osteo arithis. I would like to
have a list of foods that at anti-inflammatory to see if this skin rashes are being caused from what I am eating.

My name is Leah, and I had a patch test done last week. I have discovered that I am highly allergic to nickel and potassium dichromate (both were a 3+), cobalt dichloride, quaternium-15, formaldehyde, diazolidinyl urea, and imidazolidinyl urea (all were 1+). My skin is awful and has been for over 2 years now. Do you have any advice on how to cope and live with these allergies?

for the past few months my 2 year old has complained of itching on her arms and legs and around her back. there is no rash just lots of scratch marks where she has drawn blood. when she starts scratching an area hives might appear for a short time but then they go away. is this an allergy? she has had eczema in the past but this looks nothing like excema. there is no redness, blistering, raised area - nothing to associate with eczema.
