It started on only my forearms for the first month and has slowly taken over my entire body. They are tiny little bumps under the skin almost the size of a pencil point. Eczema is now joining in the fun and i have been to both my primary DR and a Dermatologist that said it is just dermatitis and dont know what else. They 've told me to use hydrocortisone which does nothing. The itching and pain is unbearable as its been 4 months not a few weeks. The Dr's continue to take my money and not give me care and i am praying someone on here can help. What can i use and what could be the cause? I havent changed my cologne or soap or deoderant in 5 years. I burn candles daily and wasnt sure if that could be related? anyone with any insight please say it i am trying for any advice or any progress into this condition. thanks!

I had the same problem several years ago. I was diagnosed with Lichen Plantus disease. They have to do a biopsy to diagnose it. There is no cure, but prescription steroid cream helps. They don't know the exact cause, but think that it is stress related and it can be hereditary because my daughter has it too. It can go away and come back again.Tell your doc you want the biopsy done.If he won't do it go to another doctor because this can go on and on.I thought I was going to go crazy when I had it until I got the steroid cream. Mine has not come back for a couple of years, but you have to try to keep your stress levels down.My daughter still gets outbreaks of it when she gets stressed out. Good luck.

The wireless technologys supposely are a form ofnon-ionizing radiation Whatever is producing these strange and new odd symptoms, it has to be environmental in some capacity or so many of us wouldn't beexperiencing something our doctors really have no clue what isthe cause But that's just my opinion as their seems to be a lot ofcould be this or could be that going on
