Just wanted to share that my daughter with Dyshidrotic Eczema went through prick testing -- no reactions -- then patch testing (the North American Comprehensive 80 [NAC-80] version), and had a strong nickel reaction.
We had her braces taken off (is having a nickel-free retainer made, then she will get Invisalign in a few years).
Within a day her rash was noticeably calmer. Three weeks later, it is gone!
We tried endless creams, ointments and diet changes first.
I know not everyone gets definitive results from allergy testing, but we are fortunate to now have a clear direction.
