One very dry sore hand I'm trying to heal with intense moisturiser and itchy spots on back, gave been lower back/bum but luckily those have gone, never had acne like spots anywhere else before, wondered if I was being bitten by something bed bug perhaps as don't think fleas as none of the dogs are itching! Any ideas....? Recently frontlined digs just incasesmile

I got this a lot as a kid, mother was informed we should switch laundry detergents and it helped as I never suffered from it again for many years. Last year it returned, but I was also getting massive red patches without evening scratching. We switched laundry soaps out to a sensitive one and behold the problem went away again.
