Good afternoon,
I have been diagnosed recently with contact dermatitis on my right hand and my neck, under my chin, around my mouth and around my eyes. The doctor said after having a patch test that I had reactions to Cobalt Dichloride and Gold Sodium Thiosulate.

I have removed ALL ( yes everything ! ) jewelry and have also changed my beauty regime from Baby wipes and Childs Farm baby cream to Demalogica.

My face was clear as a daisy 2 weeks ago when I changed the products I use on my face but the last few days I have had such a bad reaction and would like to ask if anyone has had any similar experiences or if anyone has advice on what I should do.

I am at my whits end with this, as I have had this now for quite a number of years and just seem to be going around in circles.

What products are out there that contain cobalt that you think i am missing? I have changed my antiperspirant spray to roll on and have stopped taking vitamin B12 supplements.

I would appreciate any guidance in the matter.

Hi! I've recently found out about the app SKINSAFE - you can type in the ingredients that you have been tested sensitive to, and it will give you products excluding these ingredients, maybe give it a try? take care!
