Hi All

About 4 years ago I used a hair colourant which I had previously been using for years, I reacted to this colourant by my scalp receiving 2nd degree burns. This then developed into blistors all over the body, the blistors wept, after a few consultations and different medications, I was told it was Exzema, and prescribed with Betnovate Scalp Lotion and Dermovate Oinment. These did help and cleared most of it up but I am now left with my forearms and hands still blistered.

I'm now finding these are no longer effective and wonder if it is infact exzema. I am a smoker and have been for 15 or so years, I have tried Chinease treaments which also seem to be ineffective.

The blisters themselves are very itchy all the time especially in the sun, if anybody can help I can send pictures, of my hand which is the worst effected.

Can anybody help? or suggest maybe what it could be?

Please help
