My son is 24 years old. For the past 6 months he has been plagued with allergic shiners (altho' they have gotten better) extremely itchy and red eyes with goo in them in the morning, very small bumps on his forehead, sores that break out on his face (not acne), several lumps in the forehead and surrounding hair area that come and go, and now a small red pin ****k looking rash on his shoulder.
He has seen several doctors, most who say it's allergy, but no treatment so far has helped, Zyrtec, nasal sprays, topical ointments, eye drops.
It's driving him crazy and the rest of us too. We do not use dyes or perfumes in our laundry products, cold weather seems to irritate it more and the only medicine he has been taking for cold sores is Acyclovir (but I didn't find any reactions that could explain these symptoms).
Any ideas?
