Dyshidrotic Eczema triggered by nickel allergy in braces

Jessica P. Pellegrino posted this message on facebook.

Just wanted to share that my daughter with Dyshidrotic Eczema went through prick testing -- no reactions -- then patch testing (the North American Comprehensive 80 [NAC-80] version), and had a strong nickel reaction.

We had her braces taken off (is having a nickel-free retainer made, then she will get Invisalign in a few years).

Within a day her rash was noticeably calmer. Three weeks later, it is gone!

We tried endless creams, ointments and diet changes first.

I know not everyone gets definitive results from allergy testing, but we are fortunate to now have a clear direction.
